S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices recovered as expected after showing a Spinning Top candlestick at support marked by a rising trend line set from late February. Buyers are testing resistance at 1754.40, the 100% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that eyeing the 123.6% level at 1779.80. Near-term support is at 1729.00, the 76.4% Fib.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices continued to move lower as expected, taking out support at the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement (98.86) to expose the bottom of a channel set from late August (now at 97.29). A break below that aims for the 50% Fib at 94.73. Alternatively, a reversal back above 98.86 eyes the September 14 2012 swing top at 100.40.
