US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices plunged to meet support in the 10449-69 area marked by the June 13 low, the 100% Fibonacci expansion and a rising trend line set from September 2012. A break below this boundary targets the 123.6% level at 10363. Near-term resistance is in the 10524-35 region, bracketed by the underside of a broken falling channel bottom and the 76.4% expansion.

The 1719.60 mark has been recast as near-term support, followed by the August 2 high at 1709.60.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices recoiled from support at 1306.88, the 50% Fibonacci retracement and surged sharply higher to test trend line resistance at 1364.48.

Near-term support is in the 1336.79-47.52 area, marked by a horizontal pivot level in play since mid-April and the 38.2% retracement.
