THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar plunged through long-term support but found no follow-through from risk appetite trends as the S&P 500 continued to tread water at resistance.

S&P 500 – Prices put in a Spinning Top candlestick at resistance in the 1415.10-24.90 area marked by the March and May swing tops, pointing to ebbing bullish conviction and warning a reversal lower may be ahead. 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. Alternatively, a turn higher beyond resistance initially targets 1440.20, the May 20 2008 high.

CRUDE OIL Prices are testing resistance at 97.82, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, with a break higher exposing a falling trend line set from the late-February swing top now at 99.24. This barrier is reinforced by the psychologically significant $100/barrel figure. Near-term support is at 95.41, the February 2 low, with a drop back below that targeting the 50% Fib at 93.90.

GOLD Prices are en route to test a major falling trend line set from the August 23 2011 peak, now at 1663.13, after breaking resistance in the 1620.45-35.70 congestion area. A break above this barrier would mark a significant bullish trend development and initially open the door for a challenge of 1680.00. The 1620.45-35.70 area has been recast as near-term support.

US DOLLAR Prices punched through long-term rising trend line support set from early August 2011 to test the bottom of a falling channel set from late May, with a break to the downside exposing the lower boundary of a steeper channel at 9916. The trend line, now at 10020, has been recast as near-term resistance, with a break above that exposing 10062.
