US Dollar Capped by Range Top, SPX 500 at Risk of Deeper Losses

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: An attempted recovery from the US Dollar was capped by the now-familiar August range top. The SPX 500 remains at risk after the selloff paused yesterday.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices continue to consolidate below familiar range resistance at 10760, marked by the August 13 high. Range support is at 10646, with a break below that targeting the bottom of a falling channel set from early July (now at 10564). A reversal above 10760 aims for the channel top at 10787.

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 as resistance, now at 1643.00.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices put in a Shooting Star candlestick pattern below resistance at 1440.23, marked by the intersection of a rising channel top and the 100% Fibonacci expansion, hinting at a move lower ahead. Near-term support is at 1400.72, the site of the 76.4% Fib and the channel bottom, with push beneath that initially exposing the 61.8% level at 1376.28. Alternatively, a push above resistance eyes the 123.6% expansion at 1479.74.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS The appearance of a Triangle chart pattern preceded upward continuation as expected. Near-term resistance is now at 111.10, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break higher exposing the 50% level at 113.85. A Shooting Star candlestick warns of a pullback however. Initial support is at 107.70, marked by the Triangle top and the 23.6% level.
