US Dollar Clings to Support, S&P 500 Still at Risk of Downturn

US Dollar Clings to Support, S&P 500 Still at Risk of Downturn

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has managed to cling to technical support for now. S&P 500 positioning continues to warn of a downward reversal looming ahead.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices bounced from support at 10420, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, to test falling trend line resistance at 10461. A break above that aims for the 23.6% expansion at 10518. Alternatively, a reversal below support targets the 38.2% retracement at 10324.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices appear to be carving out a bearish Rising Wedge chart pattern below support in the 1575.10-76.10 area, marked by the 50% Fibonacci expansion and the index’s record high. Negative RSI divergence reinforces the case for a downside scenario. A break below the wedge bottom at 1563.70 targets a channel bottom at 1550.40. Alternatively, a break above 1576.10 exposes the 61.8% expansion at 1584.50.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke support at 1562.58, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that targeting the 50% level at 1545.78. Near-term resistance is at 1583.37, the 23.6% Fib. A reversal back above that eyes the 14.6% expansion at 1596.19, a barrier reinforced by the underside of a formerly broken rising trend line set from late February.
