US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices narrowly edged below support at 10530, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, hinting sellers are now poised to challenge the 23.6% threshold at 10500. A narrow break of a minor Fib level does not speak to strong directional conviction however. With that in mind, a rebound from here sees the first major layer of resistance at rising trend line set from early April, now at 10591.

Near-term resistance is at 1693.00, the 38.2% Fib, with a turn above that eyeing the 1700.00 figure and the 23.6% retracement at 1708.70.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are consolidating below resistance at 1341.60, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. This barrier is reinforced by a falling trend line set from the late-August swing top, now at 1346.52. A break above the latter threshold initially targets the September 19 high at 1375.13. Near-term support is at 1320.86, the 38.2% level, with a move beneath that eyeing the 50% Fib at 1304.10.
