US Dollar Holds Support as S&P 500 Probes Above 1400 Figure

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar continues to hold above trend-defining support despite a push higher from the S&P 500 that took the index narrowly above the 1400 figure.

S&P 500 – Prices narrowly closed beyond the 1400 figure, seemingly exposing the next upside hurdle at the top of a rising channel set from early June, now at 1414.00 (although conviction seems suspect). Near-term support lines up at 1392.10, with a break below that exposing a falling trend line established from the March 27 high now at 1368.30.

Near-term support stands at the psychologically significant 90.00 figure and is reinforced by the 38.2% retracement at 89.87. A push below that targets a rising trend line now at 87.76.
