Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices issued the largest daily gain in 16 months, rising to the strongest level since June 2010. Near-term resistance is at 11176, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% threshold at 11232. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% Fib at 11108 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% threshold at 11108.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are testing above falling channel resistance (1965.10) to challenge the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1974.00. A break above this barrier on a daily closing basis exposes the 50% level at 1989.10. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 1955.30 targets the 14.6% expansion at 1943.80.
