S&P 500 Turns Lower, US Dollar Launches Recovery from Key Levels

S&P 500 Turns Lower, US Dollar Launches Recovery from Key Levels

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 and US Dollar may be ready to resume trends established since early 2012 after prices recoiled from bias-defining technical levels.

S&P 500 – Prices pulled back from resistance at 1392.10, a horizontal barrier reinforced by a falling trend line set from late March, to take out initial support at 1376.10. Prices now aim to target 1358.40, with a break below that exposing the 1334.40-41.90 area. The 1376.10 level has been recast as resistance, with a reversal back to the upside exposing 1392.10 anew.
