FOREX ANALYSIS: US Dollar Pulls Back as S&P 500 Selloff Stalls

FOREX ANALYSIS: US Dollar Pulls Back as S&P 500 Selloff Stalls

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar corrected lower as the S&P 500 selloff stalled after clearing trend-defining support but overall positioning still favors a stronger greenback.

US DOLLAR Prices pulled back from 9963, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, to retest resistance-turned-support at the upper boundary of a falling channel set from the June 1 high (9904). The move appears corrective, with overall positioning still favoring a broadly bullish bias. A push through 9963 targets the 50% Fib at 10032. Alternatively, a drop below support targets rising trend line support at 9852.

S&P 500 – Prices pushed lower as expected after putting in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern below resistance at 1466.10. Sellers took out trend-defining support at the bottom of a rising channel set from the June low, a barrier reinforced by the March 27 high (1424.90) and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement (1425.10), hinting prolonged weakness is ahead. The first downside objective from here is at 1394.30, the 38.2% Fib. Near-term, a Spinning Top candle points to indecision and hints a corrective upswing may materialize before renewed selling. The 1424.90-1425.10 area has been recast as resistance, with a reversal back above that targeting the channel bottom at 1437.90.
