US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices moved lower as expected after producing a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 10959 exposes the 10845-74 area marked by a falling channel bottom and the 38.2% level. Alternatively, a push above the channel top at 11026 clears the way for a test of the 11102-43 zone (23.6% Fib expansion, October 3 high).

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices stalled after three days of aggressive recovery, finding resistance at 1944.50 marked by the intersection of the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement and a falling trend line set from mid-September. A break above this barrier on a daily closing basis exposes the 76.4% level at 1974.10. Alternatively, a turn below the 50% Fib at 1920.50 targets the 38.2% retracement at 1896.50.
