Dollar Launches Recovery as S&P 500 Probes Back Below 1400 Figure

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is attempting to launch a recovery after testing trend-defining trend line support while the S&P 500 takes a step back below the 1400 figure.

S&P 500 – Prices are correcting lower after taking out resistance at 1392.10 and clearing the 1400 figure. The 1392.10 level has been recast as near-term support, with a break below that exposing a falling trend line established from the March 27 high (now at 1385.60). Alternatively, a return to upside momentum aims to take prices to challenge the top of a rising channel set from early June, now at 1417.00.

CRUDE OIL Prices are recoiling from resistance in the 93.21-90 area marked by the July 19 high and the 50% Fibonacci retracement, with sellers aiming to challenge support stands at the psychologically significant 90.00 figure. This barrier is reinforced by the 38.2% retracement at 89.87, with a push below that targets a rising trend line now at 88.01. Alternatively, a reversal through resistance initially targets the 61.8% Fib at 97.82.
