US Dollar Struggles to Build Momentum Behind Bearish Setup

US Dollar Struggles to Build Momentum Behind Bearish Setup

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has failed to generate significant downward momentum after completing a bearish chart formation hinting at a near-term top in place.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are retesting the previously broken neckline of a bearish Head and Shoulders chart pattern (10460), with a break above that on a daily closing basis negating the setup and targeting the March 20 highat 10514. Initial support is at 10423, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break beneath that exposes the 38.2% Fib at 10329. The implied H&S downside objective is at 10312.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are testing resistance at 1565.60, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break higher targeting the 1575.00-76.10 area marked by the 50% level and the index’s record high. Near-term support is at 1534.90, the March 18 low. Negative RSI divergence argues in favor of a downside scenario, although confirmation of reversal is absent at this point.
