THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has mounted a shallow recovery but follow-through from broader sentiment trends remains suspect as the S&P 500 continues to tread water.

S&P 500 – Prices are testing support at 1453.20, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, after testing the top of a rising channel set from early June. A break to the downside targets 1439.80, a Fibonacci confluence point marked by the 50% expansion and 23.6% retracement. Channel resistance is now at 1477.00, a barrier reinforced by the 61.8% expansion at 1480.70. A push above that exposes the 1500 figure and the 76.4% level at 1532.20.

CRUDE OIL Prices are testing support at 91.56, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, after taking out the bottom of a rising channel carved out since early July. A break downward targets the 50% level at 88.83. The channel bottom – now at 94.96 – has been recast as resistance. A push back above that aims to challenge a falling trend line set from late February (now at 99.38).
