US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern, hinting a bounce may be ahead. A break above range bottom support-turned-resistance at 10612 aims for the 10669-85 area marked by the December swing 4 high and the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion. A reversal below support at 10565 (December 10 low) targets the 38.2% Fib retracement at 10549.

** The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index and the Mirror Trader USD basket are not the same product.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices fell as expected, with sellers once again testing resistance-turned-support at 1778.90 (October 30 swing high). A break lower initially exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1749.60. Resistance is in the 1813.10-17.80 area, marked by the November 29 high and the 23.6% Fib expansion.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices advanced as expected after putting in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern coupled with positive RSI divergence. 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.

Near-term support is at 96.57, the 23.6% Fib, with a break below that targeting 95.36. Alternatively, a push above 99.56 aims for the 50% retracement at 101.97.
