Forex Analysis: US Dollar Holds its Ground Despite S&P 500 Rebound

Forex Analysis: US Dollar Holds its Ground Despite S&P 500 Rebound

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY:The US Dollar proved resilient despite its safe-haven characteristics, holding above key technical support even as the S&P 500 recovered sharply higher.

US DOLLARTECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices remain wedged between resistance-turned-support at the upper boundary of a falling channel set from the June 1 high (9881) 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 9870.

S&P 500TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices moved higher as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern above support at the 1400 figure, a barrier reinforced by the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1394.30. Buyers have now cleared initial resistance in the 1424.90-1425.10 area, exposing the underside of a rising channel set from early June (now at 1447.70). A further push above that targets 1466.10. The 1424.90-1425.10 region has been recast as near-term support.
