US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern above support at 10401, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion, hinting a bounce may be ahead. Breaking above the 61.8% expansion at 10439 exposes the 10475-84 area, marked by the underside of a previously broken falling channel and the 23.6% Fib retracement. Alternatively, a reversal downward below support aims for the 100% expansion at 10339.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick above support at 1810.60, the 100% Fibonacci expansion, hinting a move higher is ahead. Initial resistance is at 1843.50, the 38.2% Fib retracement, followed by rising channel support-turned-resistance at 1847.90. Alternatively, a reversal below 1810.60 aims for the intersection of the 123.6% expansion and a rising trend line set from February 2013 at 1795.80.
