THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar and the S&P 500 stand at key barriers defining the risk-off trend prevalent since mid-September, threatening a reversal ahead.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 9993 to challenge the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-September (now at 9966). A break below this boundary initially exposes the 38.2% level at 9945. Alternatively, a break back above 9993 aims for the November 16 high at 10071.
