US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices began a swift recovery as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern at double bottom support set from October 2013. Buyers are testing resistance at 10431, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 10452. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 10405 opens the door for a test of the 14.6% retracement at 10389.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern at the top of a rising channel set from mid-April, hinting a move lower may be ahead. A break below rising trend line support at 1975.30 initially exposes the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1960.10. Near-term resistance is at 1985.90, the July 3 high, followed by the channel top at 1995.10.

Negative RSI divergence warns of ebbing upside momentum, hinting a turn lower may be ahead. A break downward on a daily closing basis exposes the 38.2% level at 1297.85. Near-term resistance is at 1333.47, the July 1 high.
