  • Also, S&P Global put out a report overnight that said China would likely step in to curb “far-reaching contagion” re: Evergrande. The House is scheduled to vote on a stopgap funding bill Tuesday, which might be alleviating some investor angst around the debt ceiling as well.
  • Encouraging we recoiled higher off yesterday’s closing level. Could the pre-FOMC drift be at work? Markets were priced for potential hawkish shift and increased odds of taper timeline announcement. Perhaps seeing an unwind of that in light of recent market developments.

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.
