Dollar Chart Setup Warns of Pullback, S&P 500 Eyes February Top

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar appears vulnerable to a correction lower from technical resistance while the S&P 500 has rebounded to retest February’s swing high.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices put in a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance marked by the intersection of a rising channel top (now at 10522) and the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion (10504), hinting at a pullback ahead. Channel support is now at 10415, with a move below that initially exposing the 61.8% Fib at 10359. Alternatively, a break higher broadly exposes the 100% level at 10741.
