US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices pulled back to retest resistance-turned-support in the 10509-37 area, marked by the top of a falling channel set from July. A break downward initially eyes the November 6 low at 10492. Near-term resistance is at 10653, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a push above that targeting the 38.2% level at 10839.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices pulled back as expected, completing a bearish Three Inside Down candlestick pattern. Near-term support is in the 1765.70-73.40 area, marked by a horizontal barrier set from late October and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break below that targets the 38.2% level at 1743.00. Near-term resistance is at 1802.40, the November 18 high.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices recoiled from resistance at 1292.15, marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion and reinforced by a falling trend line set from October 28. A break below support at 1270.67, the 50% level, threatens to overturn a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern and expose the 61.8% Fib at 1249.18. Alternatively, a reversal above resistance targets the 23.6% expansion at 1318.73.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices continue to consolidate above the November 14 low 92.49, with positive RSI divergence hinting a bounce may be ahead. Initial resistance is at 95.37, marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion and reinforced by the top of a falling channel set from late August. A break above that initially exposes the 23.6% level at 97.14. Alternatively, a move below 92.49 targets the channel bottom at 90.27.
