US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern above support at 10469, the June swing bottom, hinting a move higher is ahead. Positive RSI divergence bolsters the case for an upside scenario. Initial resistance is at 10536, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that targeting the 38.2% level at 10591.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices broke major trend line support set from November 2012, stalling at a secondary barrier set from late February. Continued selling beneath that eyes the August swing low a 1626.60. Resistance is now in the 1666.40-77.50 area, marked by the underside of the broken trend line as well as a horizontal pivot level (1672.40) and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break above that exposes the 38.2% level at 1693.20.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices continue to hover below resistance at a falling trend line set from late August, now at 1324.46. This barrier is reinforced by the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1337.32, with a break above the latter level targeting the 50% Fib at 1355.70. Horizontal pivot support is at 1275.51.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are wedged between support at 100.88, a horizontal pivot dating back to April 2012, and the underside of a rising channel set from early July (104.94). This is reinforced by the top of a falling channel set from the August 28 swing high. A break upward aims for the underside of a rising trend line set from mid-April (107.45). Alternatively, a push through support initially targets the $100.00/barrel figure.
