US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices continued to push lower after taking out support at a rising trend line set from mid-June, with sellers now challenging the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion at 10656. A break below this barrier exposes the 100% level at 10581. Near-term resistance is at 10702, the 61.8% Fib, followed by the 50% expansion at 10739.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices pulled back as expected after putting in a Hanging Man candlestick. Near-term support is at 1687.40, the May 22 high, a barrier reinforced by the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-July (1692.30). A break below that targets the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1674.10. Channel resistance is now at 1715.80.
