S&P 500 Chart Setup Still Bearish After Bounce, Hinting at Dollar Gains

S&P 500 Chart Setup Still Bearish After Bounce, Hinting at Dollar Gains

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: S&P 500 technical positioning continues to call for weakness in the days ahead, implying the likelihood of an advance in the safe-haven US Dollar.

S&P 500 – Prices bounced from minor support at 1324.60, the July 12 low, to retest support-turned-resistance in the 1334.40-41.90 area. A break above this boundary exposes 1357.00. The overall bearish structure identified yesterday remains in place, with the move higher seen as corrective within a larger decline to 1285.50, a measured target implied by the Rising Wedge pattern set from early June.
