THE TAKEAWAY: The prospect for a US Dollar recovery has been threatened as the S&P 500 pushed above initial technical resistance, warning of ebbing haven demand for the greenback.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are stalling at the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-September (now at 9971). A break below this boundary initially exposes the 38.2% level at 9945. Near-term resistance lines up at 9993, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a push above that aiming to challenge the November 16 high at 10071.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices edged above resistance at a falling trend line set from mid-October to challenge the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 1408.50. A break above this boundary exposes the 1424.90-30.90 area. The trend line, now at 1402.30, has been recast as support. A drop back below that aims for the 38.2% retracementat 1392.80.

A further push downward below that exposes the 23.6% Fib at 1701.60, a barrier reinforced by a rising trend line set from late June (now at 1697.29). Near-term resistance lines up at 1734.15, the 50% retracement.
