US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are trying to breach a double bottom in play since October 2013 after breaking a trend line set from July 2011. Near-term support is at 10364, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion. A daily close below that targets the 10354-9 area marked by the double bottom’s outer layer and the floor of a falling channel set from early June. Alternatively, a move above resistance 10382, the 61.8% level, aims for the 50% Fib at 10397.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices pushed to another record high, with buyers aiming to challenge resistance at 1981.50 marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. This barrier is reinforced by a rising channel top at 1987.40. A daily close above the latter level clears the way for a move the psychologically significant 2,000 figure and the 38.2% Fib at 2004.60. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 14.6% level at 1967.20 aims for the June 26 low at 1944.10.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices broke higher after oscillating in a narrow range for over a week, taking out resistance at 1321.64 marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion. Buyers now aim to challenge the 50% level at 1346.78, with a further push above that eyeing the 61.8% Fib at 1371.93. Negative RSI divergence warns upside momentum may be short-lived however. A turn back below 1321.64 exposes the 1300/oz figure, followed by the 1277.00-90 zone bracketed by the April 1 low and the 23.6% expansion.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are in consolidation mode below resistance at 106.69, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion.A daily close above this barrier initially targets the 38.2% level at 107.99. Alternatively, a reversal below support at 105.19, marked by a rising trend line set from early May and the March 3 high, exposes the 38.2% Fib retracement at 104.24.
