US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may be setting up for a pullback after rallying as expected having put in a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern. The emergence of negative RSI divergence below resistance at 10560, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, warns of ebbing upside momentum. A daily close below the 38.2% level at 10513 exposes a rising trend line established from the July 1 low, now at 10481. Alternatively, a push through resistance opens the door for a test of the 61.8% Fib at 10606.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices declined as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern with negative RSI divergence. A break below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1921.80 has exposed the 50% level at 1900.30. Moving further below that eyes the 61.8% Fib at 1878.70. Alternatively, a reversal back above 1921.80 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% retracement at 1948.40.
