S&P 500, US Dollar Hover at Key Technical Barriers as Event Risk Looms

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 and the US Dollar are hovering at trend-defining technical barriers as markets wait for the FOMC and ECB rate decisions to cross the wires.

S&P 500 – Prices are testing resistance at 1392.10, a horizontal barrier reinforced by a falling trend line set from late March. Negative RSI divergence argues for a downside scenario. Initial support lines up at 1380.60, with a break below that exposing 1358.40. Alternatively, a push through resistance neutralizes the overall bearish structure and exposes the 1400 figure.

US DOLLAR Prices are hovering above the 10000 figure – a barrier reinforced by a major rising trend line set from late July – after taking out range support at 10041. A daily close below the latter boundary would make the case for a significant bearish trend change. The 10041 level has been recast as near-term resistance.
