Near-term resistance is at 10687, the 50% level, with a break above that targeting the 38.2% Fib at 10716. Alternatively, a move below support exposes the 76.4% expansion at 10620.

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. The bulls have now cleared the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1684.10, exposing the 50% level at 1701.90. A further break above this barrier aims for the August 2 high at 1709.60 and the 61.8 Fib 1719.60. The 1684.10 level has been recast as support.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke below the bottom of a rising channel set from late-June and cleared the 1343.73-47.52 region marked by a horizontal pivot as well as the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion. Sellers now aim to challenge the 23.6% level at 1288.32. Alternatively, a reversal back above 1347.52 opens the door for a retest of the channel bottom, now at 1363.72.
