US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are edging higher as expected after putting in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern above support at 10520, the February 17 low. Near-term resistance is at 10599, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that initially exposing the 50% level at 10629.

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

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices turned lower from resistance at 1883.80, marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion and reinforced by a rising channel top. Sellers are now testing support at 1864.80, the intersection of the 23.6% Fib and the channel bottom. A break below that initially exposes the 23.6% Fib retracement at 1853.00. Alternatively, a move above resistance eyes the 50% expansion at 1899.20.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are testing above resistance at a falling trend line set from April 2013, with a break higher on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1368.60. Negative RSI divergence continues to warn of ebbing upside momentum and a forthcoming downturn however. Near-term trend line support is at 1331.35.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – The formation of a Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern preceded a turn lower, as expected. A break below support in the 100.23-73 area, marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion and the December 27 high, has exposed the 38.2% level at 97.17. The 100.73 level has been recast as the outer layer of near-term resistance.
