US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices broke range support at 10595, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, exposing the 38.2% level at 10549. A further push below that eyes the 50% Fib at 10512. Alternatively, reversing back above 10595 targets the December 4 high at 10669.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rebounded from resistance-turned-support at 1778.90 (October 30 swing high). Resistance is in the 1813.10-17.80 area, marked by the November 29 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break above that targets the 38.2% level at 1842.10. Reversing below support exposes the 38.2% Fib retracement at 1749.60. A Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern argues in favor of the downside scenario.

A break above resistance in the 1247.08-51.54 area, marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement and the October 15 low, has exposed the 38.2% level at 1268.98. A further push beyond that eyes the 50% Fib at 1286.68. Alternatively, a reversal back below 1247.08 aims for the December 4 low at 1211.67.
