THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is flirting with a completing a meaningful bearish breakout as prices test key support while the S&P 500 moves toward the index’s record high.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices pulled back from resistance in the 10547-76 area, marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion and the March 11 high, to test support at a rising trend line set from late March (now at 10450). A break below that initially eyes the April 2 low at 10391. Alternatively, a reversal above 10576 exposes the 38.2% level at 10643.
