THE TAKEAWAY:The US Dollar has stalled below technical resistance as the S&P 500 has once again managed to hold up above the stubbornly resilient 1400 level.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices narrowly edged though resistance-turned-support at 9963, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. Sellers now aim to target 9868-77 area, marked by a rising channel bottom set from mid-September and a falling channel top established from the June 1 high. Resistance is at the 10000 figure, with a break above that aiming for the 50% Fib at 10032.
