THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is probing above near-term resistance as the S&P 500 nears completion of a bearish chart formation that would open the door to a larger selloff.

S&P 500 – Prices continue to push lower after completing a bearish Evening Doji Star candlestick pattern identified last week, 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. A Spinning Top candle at support hints at indecision and suggests a bounce may materialize before a support break. The 1363.90 level has been recast as near-term resistance.

Alternatively, a breach of support targets the 81.19-52 area marked by the June 4 low and the 14.6% retracement.
