Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may correct lower after rising as expected after showing a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. The appearance of negative RSI divergence below resistance at 10560, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, hints at ebbing upside momentum. A break below the 38.2% level at 10513 on a daily closing basis exposes a rising trend line established from the July 1 low, now at 10484. Alternatively, a move above 10560 clears the way for a challenge 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 bounce following a test of the 1900.00 figure sees prices testing resistance at 1931.30, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a close above that targeting the 50% level at 1942.80. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% Fib at 1917.10 aims for the August 8 low at 1894.10.
