Forex Analysis: US Dollar Chart Setup Warns of Weakness Ahead

Forex Analysis: US Dollar Chart Setup Warns of Weakness Ahead

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: US Dollar technical positioning is warning a turn lower may be ahead as prices reverse from resistance while the S&P 500 probes toward 1500.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern below resistance at the top of a rising channel set from mid-September, hinting a move lower is ahead. Near-term support is at 10066, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A break below that initially exposes the 50% level at 10038. Channel resistance is now at 10152.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are testing resistance at 1495.70, the 100% Fibonacci expansion. A break above that aims for the 123.6% level at 1531.30. Near-term support is in the 1470.40-74.90 area marked by the September 14 2012 high and the 76.4% Fib. A reversal below that targets the 61.8% expansion at 1454.50.
