Forex Analysis: US Dollar Rebounds as S&P 500 Chart Warns of Reversal

Forex Analysis: US Dollar Rebounds as S&P 500 Chart Warns of Reversal

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is staging an impressive recovery while S&P 500 positioning warns of a turn lower ahead, promising added support for the haven currency.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are rebounding toward resistance at the top of a rising channel set from mid-September (10154), a barrier reinforced by the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion at 10170. A break above the latter barrier aims for the 100% level at 10248. Near-term trend line support is at 10081.
