US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a Spinning Top candlestick below resistance at 10760, the recent range top marked by the August 13 high, hinting a move lower may be ahead. Range support is at 10569, with a break below that targeting the bottom of a falling channel set from early July (now at 10575). A reversal above 10760 aims for the channel top at 10792.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices dropped as expected after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Sellers have cleared support at a rising trend line defining the rising trend from November 2012, hinting a major reversal may be at hand. The next level of support from here is at 1616.60, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. Alternatively, a move back above the 50% level at 1643.30 opens the door for a retest of the trend line support-turned-resistance, now at 1641.40.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices continued higher as expected after taking out resistance at the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion (1400.72). The bulls now aim to challenge 1440.23, a barrier marked by the intersection of a rising channel top and the 100% level. The 1400.72 mark has been recast as near-term support, with a reversal back beneath that eyeing the channel bottom at 1389.14.
