THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar turned lower as expected while the S&P 500 finally found fuel for a significant push, racing upward to set a new five-year high.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are turning lower as expected, with a break below near-term rising trend line support initially exposing the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 10252. This barrier is reinforced by a longer-term trend line as well as the former of top of an upward-sloping channel. Near-term resistance is at 10355, the February 18 high.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices broke above resistance at 1523.00, the 123.6% Fibonacci expansion, exposing the 138.2% level at 1538.70. A further push above that aims for the 150% level at 1551.60. The 1523.00 level has been recast as near-term support and is reinforced by a rising trend line set from early January. A reversal back below that clears the way for a descent to the 1500 figure and the 100% expansion at 1497.60
