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 the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 10452, initially exposes the 61.8% level at 10743. Alternatively, reversal below the 38.2% Fib at 10431 opens the door for a challenge of rising trend line support at 10409, followed by a triple bottom established from October 2013 in the 10354-75 area.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices moved lower as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern at the top of a rising channel set from mid-April. Sellers are testing support in the 1954.20, marked by a rising channel bottom set from early April. A break below that on a daily closing basis exposes the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1944.20. Alternatively, a move back above the 14.6% level at 1960.10 aims for the July 3 high at 1985.90.
