US Dollar Finds Support as S&P 500 Rally Pauses, Gold Aims Higher

US Dollar Finds Support as S&P 500 Rally Pauses, Gold Aims Higher

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: US Dollar found interim support against a backdrop of cooling upside momentum in the S&P 500. Gold prices are aiming higher after clearing resistance.

S&P 500 – Prices are retesting the previously broken top of a rising channel set from early June (1459.00) as support. A break to the downside targets the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 1439.60. Near-term resistance lines up at 1481.00, the 61.8% Fib, with a push above that exposing the 1500 figure and the 76.4% level at 1532.20.

CRUDE OIL Prices pulled back from resistance at a falling trend line set from late February (99.51) to challenge range support at 94.61. This barrier is reinforced by the bottom of a rising channel carved out since early July. A break below this boundary initially exposes 92.56. Alternatively, a push above the trend line aims for 100.65 and the channel top (102.17).

GOLD Prices took out resistance at a falling trend line connecting major swing highs since early November 2011, hinting at bullish continuation ahead. Near-term resistance is at 1790.55, with a break above that targeting 1802.80. The trend line – now at 1757.14 – has been recast as support. A push back below that boundary sees initial downside barriers at 1741.07 and 1718.50.
