THE TAKEAWAY: Technical positioning hints the S&P 500 may be on the cusp of a reversal lower, hinting a pick-up in haven demand may cut short recent US Dollar weakness.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke through support at the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-September, exposing the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 9933. A sustained push below that targets the 38.2% level at 9849. Channel bottom support-turned-resistance is now at 9978.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern below resistance in the 1424.90-1430.90 area, hinting the upward correction witnessed since mid-September may be over and the dominant down trend ready to resume. Initial support lines up at 1394.30, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break below that targets the 38.2% level at 1374.90. Alternatively, a push above 1430.90 exposes the familiar triple top at 1466.10.
