THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar pushed above May’s swing top to set a 3-year high. The S&P 500 may be ready to turn lower, ending the recovery launched last week.

Capitalize on Shifts in Market Mood with the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – A break above resistance at 10876, the late-May swing top, has exposed the 123.6% Fibonacci extension at 10973 as the next upside objective. The 10876 mark has been recast as near-term support, with a reversal back beneath that eyeing the 76.4% levelat 10781.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices corrected higher as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A Doji candle below trend line support-turned-resistance set from late February (1619.30) now points to indecision and warns renewed selling may be ahead. Near-term support is at 1595.80, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that targeting the 38.2% level at 1577.10. Alternatively, a move above resistance aims for a recently broken upward-sloping barrier established from mid-November 2012 (1634.90).

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices turned higher after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A break above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement (1237.63) has exposed the 38.2% level at 1273.19. A further push above that aims for the 50% Fib at 1301.93. The 1237.63 mark has been recast as near-term support, with a drop back beneath that targeting the June 28 low at 1180.15.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS An expected rebound from rising trend line support has aggressively accelerated, with prices testing above resistance at the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion (101.07) to target the 76.4% level (103.06). Near-term support is at the psychologically significant 100.00 figure, followed by the 50% Fib (99.47).
