US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices remain in a precarious position as prices continue to hover above multi-year rising trend support set from July 2011. This barrier (now at 10420) is reinforced by a falling channel bottom at 10401. A daily close below that would suggest a major reversal is in progress and initially expose double bottom support at 10375.Channel top resistance is at 10462, with a move above that exposing the 10474-95 cluster. The next topside barrier after that stands at 10531, May 28 high.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices turned lower as expected after putting in a Shooting Star candlestick coupled with negative RSI divergence. Sellers are testing the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1944.50, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 1930.20. Alternatively, a reversal above the June 24 high at 1967.60 aims for a rising channel top at 1979.30.
