THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 is accelerating upward while US Dollar technical positioning points to losses ahead for the go-to safe haven currency.

S&P 500 – Prices are accelerating higher after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern above support at a rising trend line set from late July. Initial resistance lines up at 1466.10, with a break above that targeting the top of a channel established from the June 4 low (now at 1492.20). Alternatively, a break below trend line support (now at 1447.50) exposes 1422.40.

CRUDE OIL Prices reversed sharply higher having found support at 87.70, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion. The bulls now aim to challenge the 23.6% level at 92.56.
