THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is awaiting direction cues at resistance as the S&P 500 challenges the threshold of a major bearish breakout, hinting a large selloff may be ahead.

S&P 500 – Prices continue to push lower after completing a bearish Evening Doji Star candlestick pattern, taking out initial support at 1363.90 to expose the 1334.40-41.90 area. A daily close below this boundary confirms a Rising Wedge bearish chart formation, opening the door for a larger downward reversal. The 1363.90 level has been recast as near-term resistance.
