US Dollar Looking for Direction, SPX 500 Looks Vulnerable

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below resistance at 1669.80, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, hinting a move lower is ahead.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices overturned bearish reversal cues noted last week, pushing higher to take out resistance at the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion (1400.72). The bulls now aim to challenge the top of a rising channel at 1430.85, followed by the 100% level at 1440.23. The 1400.72 mark has been recast as near-term support, with a reversal back beneath that eyeing the channel bottom at 1381.40.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are tracing out a consolidation Triangle chart pattern, a setup typically indicative of consolidation preceding overall trend resumption (which favors the upside in this case). Resistance at the Triangle top is reinforced by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 108.40, with a break above that targeting the 50% level at 110.32. Triangle support is now at 103.78. A reversal beneath that eyes a rising trend line at 100.58.
