Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar and the S&P 500 continue to wait for directional clarity as prices stall ahead of trend-defining technical barriers.

S&P 500 – Prices continue to stall near resistance in the 1415.10-24.90 area marked by the March and May swing tops. A push higher beyond that targets 1440.20, the May 20 2008 high. Initial support remains at 1392.10, with a break below that exposing a minor downside barrier at 1376.10 and a more significant one at 1363.90.

CRUDE OIL Prices broke resistance at 95.41, the February 2 low, opening the door for a challenge of the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 97.82. A break above that exposes the psychologically significant $100/barrel figure. The 95.41 level has been recast as support, with a drop back below that targeting the 50% Fib at 93.90.
