Dollar Gains Momentum as S&P 500 Setup Threatens Drop Below 1300

Dollar Gains Momentum as S&P 500 Setup Threatens Drop Below 1300

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar continues to build upward while S&P 500 technical positioning is warning of a major selloff that threatens to take prices below the 1300 figure again.

S&P 500 – Prices continue to push lower after completing a bearish Evening Doji Star candlestick pattern identified last week, taking out the bottom of a Rising Wedge formation carved out since early June to rest in the familiar 1334.40-41.90 support area. A daily close beyond this area offers final confirmation of a significant near-term reversal with a measured downside target at 1269.90. Interim support levels line up at 1308.90 and 1290.10. Near-term resistance is at 1343.50, the Wedge bottom.

CRUDE OIL Prices are consolidating above support at 84.14, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. Near-term resistance is at 88.40, the 38.2% level, with a break above that exposing the 90.00 figure. Alternatively, a breach of support targets the 81.19-52 area marked by the June 4 low and the 14.6% retracement.
