US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are struggling to build upward having reversed higher as expected after producing a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern. Buyers are testing resistance in the 10442-56 area, marked by the July 3 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break above that on a daily closing basis exposes the 38.2% level at 10513. Alternatively, a below rising trend line support at 10426 targets the July 9 low at 10392, followed by a triple bottom in the 10354-75 area.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are begrudgingly inching lower as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A daily close below support at the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-April – now at 1958.50 – exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1938.50. Alternatively, a reversal above the 23.6% Fib expansion at 1977.70 opens the door for a challenge of the July 3 high at 1985.90, followed by the 38.2% level at 1995.80.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices have mounted a corrective recovery after turning downward as expected. A break above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1320.34 on a daily closing basis initially exposes the 14.6% level at 1329.78. Alternatively, a move below the 38.2% level at 1305.3 opens the door for a test of the 50% Fib at 1292.66.
