US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rebounded as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern at support set from October 2013. A daily close above resistance at 10431, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, targets the 50% level at 10452. Alternatively, a turn below triple bottom support in the 10354-75 area opens the door for a challenge of a multi-year horizontal pivot in play since August 2010 at 10306.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are edging lower as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern at the top of a rising channel set from mid-April. A break below the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1960.10 on a daily closing basis exposes 1944.20-50.70 area, marked by the channel floor and the 23.6% level. Near-term resistance is at 1985.90, the July 3 high, followed by the underside of a previously broken trend line at 1996.20.

Sellers are aiming to test support at 1287.13, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 1269.22. Alternatively, a reversal above the 23.6% Fib at 1309.28 targets rising trend line support-turned-resistance at 1330.51.

Alternatively, a turn back above 101.36 eyes the 23.6% retracement at 103.76.
