S&P 500 Signals Rebound Ahead as US Dollar Stalls at Resistance

S&P 500 Signals Rebound Ahead as US Dollar Stalls at Resistance

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: S&P 500 technical positioning hints that a rebound may be ahead, threatening the safe-haven US Dollar as prices stall ahead of trend-defining resistance.

S&P 500 – Prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern above trend-defining support at 1424.90, marked by the March 27 swing high and the bottom of a rising channel set from the June bottom, hinting a move higher is ahead. The first layer of significant resistance is in the 1463.80-66.10 area, defined by the underside of a previously broken rising trend line and the range top prevailing since mid-September. A break above that threatens to expose the 1500 figure. Alternatively, a reversal below support initially targets the 1400 level.
