US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices recoiled downward after putting the benchmark currency at the highest level in seven months. A daily close below the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion at 10657 exposes the 10629-35 area marked by a rising trend line and the 61.8% level. Alternatively, reversal above the 100% Fib at 10703 opens the door for a challenge of the 123.6% expansion at 10749.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices appear vulnerable to continued weakness after breaking below a rising trend line set from December 2013. A near-term bounce above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1268.56 sees the next layer of resistance at 1279.19, the intersection of the aforementioned trend line and the 23.6% level. Pushing further above that eyes the 14.6% Fib at 1285.75. Alternatively, a move below 1259.97 – marked by the 50% expansion and a falling channel floor – targets the 61.8% threshold at 1251.38.
