US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rebounded from resistance-turned-support at the top of a falling channel set from July (now in the 10491-518 area) as expected. Near-term resistance is in the 10641-53 region, marked by the November 12 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A push above that targets the 38.2% level at 10839. Negative RSI divergence warns a near-term pullback may be ahead, with a move below the November 20 low at 10535 eying the channel anew.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at 1808.20, the 150% Fibonacci expansion, hinting a turn lower may be ahead. Negative RSI divergence and the outlines of a Rising Wedge chart formation reinforce the case for a downside scenario. Initial support is at 1798.50, the 138.2% Fib, with a break below that eyeing the 123.6% level at 1779.80. A push above resistance targets the 161.8% expansion at 1820.80.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices bounced from support at 1222.60, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion. Resistance is at 1256.18, the intersection of the 23.6% Fib retracement and a falling trend line set from late October. A break above that targets the 38.2% retracement at 1276.35. Alternatively, a reversal below support eyes the $1200/oz figure and the 100% expansion at 1179.63.

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 in the 94.76-95.37 area, 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 89.40.
