THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is waiting for directional cues from risk sentiment trends as the S&P 500 stalls after hitting a four-month high.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices turned lower from resistance at the top of a rising channel set from mid-September, taking out near-term support at smaller channel bottom to expose the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 10038. A further push below that aims for the 61.8% level at 10009. Near-term resistance is at 10066, the 23.6% retracement, followed by the channel bottom at 10091.
