US Dollar Vulnerable at Resistance, S&P 500 Rally Continues

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar technical positioning hints prices are vulnerable to a correction lower while the S&P 500 continues to push higher through key levels.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke resistance at 10504, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion, with buyers now testing the top of a rising channel top set from early February (now at 10583). A break above that aims for the 100% expansion at 10741. Negative RSI divergence warns of ebbing bullish momentum and hints a reversal downward may be ahead. The 10504 level has been recast as support, with a drop back below that aiming for the channel bottom at 10463.
