US Dollar Gains as S&P 500 Hints at Pullback But Larger Trends Intact

US Dollar Gains as S&P 500 Hints at Pullback But Larger Trends Intact

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar recovered while the S&P 500 put in signs of a pullback ahead but follow-through is questionable while trend-defining barriers remain intact.

S&P 500 – Prices put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern below resistance at 1466.10, hinting a move lower is ahead. Initial support lines up at the bottom of a rising channel set from the early June swing low (1429.10), with a break below that exposing the 1400 figure. Alternatively, reversal through resistance clears the way for a challenge of the 1500 mark.

CRUDE OIL Prices are testing resistance at the would-be neckline of an inverse Head and Shoulders bottom (92.26), with a break higher implying a measured upside target at 97.72. Support stands at 87.66, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A drop below that targets the 50% level at 83.76.

GOLD Prices are testing support in the 1732.33-35.65 area, marked by a horizontal pivot level and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break downward initially exposes 38.2% Fib at 1693.06. Initial resistance stands at the underside of a previously broken Rising Wedge pattern (now at 1772.92), with a reversal above that targeting 1790.55-1802.80 region.

US DOLLAR Prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern above support at 9835, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, hinting a rebound may be a head. Overall positioning favors weakness absent a close above falling channel top resistance at 9922, making any rebound falling short of that corrective. A drop below support exposes the 38.2% retracement at 9765.
