US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices continue to march upward, clearing the 2010 high to hit the highest level in over five years. Near-term resistance is at 11308, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 11400. Alternatively, a reversal below the 38.2% Fib at 11216 clears the way for a test of the 11102-43 area marked by the October 3 high and the 23.6% expansion.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are poised to continue upward after clearing resistance at 2032.30, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion. Buyers are now aiming for the 23.6% level at 2051.00, with a close above that exposing the 38.2% Fib at 2081.20. Alternatively a reversal back below resistance-turned-support at 2022.10, the September 19 high, clears the way for a test of the November 4 low at 2002.10.

Alternatively, a reversal back above the 61.8% Fib at 1154.82 aims for the 1173.99-78.86 area (December 2013 low, 50% expansion).
