US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – A break below a counter trend line support underpinning the upswing over the past month suggests the downtrend initiated at the July swing high as resumed. Sellers now aim to challenge the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 10673, with a break below that targeting the 50% level at 10631. Near-term resistance is at 10726, the 23.6% Fib.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices vaulted higher from support in a region bracketed by a pair of trend lines set from the November 2012, taking out the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1662.10 to challenge the 38.2% level at 1684.10. A break above this barrier aims for the 1700.00 figure and the 50% Fib 1701.80. The 1662.10 level has been recast as support.
