Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has hit resistance at the outer boundary of its recent rising trend. S&P 500 positioning continues to favor a bearish outlook.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are testing resistance marked by the intersection of a rising channel top and the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion (10505). A break higher broadly exposes the 100% level at 10741. Channel support is now at 10405, with a move below that initially exposing the 61.8% Fib at 10359.

A still-valid Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern marking the February 20 top continues to argue to argue for a broadly bearish outlook however, painting recent gains as corrective. Swing high resistance is at 1531.60, followed by a formerly broken rising trend line at 1537.30. Alternatively, a drop below 1486.90 exposes the 38.2% Fib at 1459.20.
