THE TAKEAWAY:The US Dollar and the S&P 500 are treading water near familiar technical barriers as risk sentiment trends look to establish a clear directional bias.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices remain wedged between resistance-turned-support at the upper boundary of a falling channel set from the June 1 high (9884) and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 9963. A break higher exposes the 50% Fib at 10032. Alternatively, a drop below support targets rising trend line support at 9867.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern above support at the 1400 figure, a barrier reinforced by the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1394.30, hinting an upswing is ahead. Initial resistance lines up in the 1424.90-1425.10 area, with a break above that exposing the underside of a rising channel set from early June (now at 1443.10). Alternatively, a reversal through 1394.30 targets the 50% Fib at 1369.40.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices pushed higher as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern above support at 1693.06, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, taking out resistance at a falling trend line set from the October 5. Buyers now aim to challenge the 1732.33-35.65 area, marked by a horizontal pivot level and the 23.6% Fib, with a push above that exposing the 1800/oz figure. Trend line resistance-turned-support is now at 1704.16, with the 1693.06 level providing added reinforcement. A drop below the latter boundary exposes the 50% Fib at 1661.32
