US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices turned sharply higher anew, putting the benchmark unit at the highest level in 14 months against its top counterparts.Near-term resistance is at 10953, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 11031. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib at 10905 opens the door for a challenge of the September 16 low at 10827.

** The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index and the Mirror Trader USD basket are not the same product.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices recoiled from support at 1984.60, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, to challenge the 2012.60-18.90 area marked by the September 3 high and the 38.2% expansion. A break above this barrier exposes the 50% threshold at 2032.80. Alternatively, a reversal below support targets the 38.2% retracement at 1967.30.
