US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices edged below support at 10529, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, to expose the March 7 low at 10502. This barrier is reinforced by the 38.2% Fib at 10492. A break below the latter level targets the 50% expansion at 10462. Alternatively, a reversal above 10529 opens the door for a test of falling trend line resistance at 10574.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – The formation of a Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern preceded a turn lower, as expected. The appearance of a Morning Star setup now suggests a rebound is in the cards. Initial resistance is in the 100.73-83 area, marked by the December 27 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break above that aims for the 38.2% level at 102.87. Near-term support is at 97.53, the March 12 low.
