THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has recovered to meet the first layer of resistance while the S&P 500 appears to be carving out a top below the May and March swing highs.

S&P 500 – Prices are retesting resistance in the 1415.10-24.90 area marked by the March and May swing tops after an initial push lower, with a Shooting Star candlestick hinting downside momentum may be ready to resume. Initial support remains at 1392.10, with a breach below that targeting a minor downside hurdle at 1376.10 and a more significant one at 1363.90. Alternatively, a break above resistance initially exposes a channel top at 1435.40, followed by the May 20 2008 high at 1440.20.
