Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has found technical resistance and appears likely to correct lower while the S&P 500 continues to march higher toward the 1600 figure.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are testing the top of a rising channel top set from early February (now at 10595). 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. Near-term support is at 10504, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion, with a drop back below that aiming for the channel bottom at 10476.
