S&P 500 Extends Rebound as US Dollar Sinks Past Chart Support

S&P 500 Extends Rebound as US Dollar Sinks Past Chart Support

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 continued to recover after producing a bullish reversal technical signal yesterday, while the US Dollar has reversed lower to take out initial support.

S&P 500 – Prices pushed higher as expected after putting 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. Initial resistance is at 1466.10, defined by the underside of a previously broken rising trend line and the range top prevailing since mid-September. A further push above that threatens to expose the 1500 figure. Alternatively, a drop below support initially targets the 1400 level.
