US Dollar Sets 3-Year High, S&P 500 May Turn Lower

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

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.

Near-term support is at the psychologically significant 100.00 figure, followed by the 50% Fib (99.47).
