US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices appear vulnerable to a correction lower having produced a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 11211 exposes the 11143-55 area marked by the October 3 high and the 38.2% level. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% retracement at 11246 opens the door for a challenge of the 50% Fib expansion at 11295.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are stalling near the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 2032.30. A break upward initially exposes 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.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices recoiled sharply higher to test resistance in the 1178.86-80.84 area marked by the December 2013 low and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break above that on a daily closing basis exposes the 38.2% level at 1212.23. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% retracement at 1161.49 aims for the 76.4% Fib expansion at 1131.11.

Alternatively, a reversal above the 23.6% Fib at 84.39 aims for the 85.22-73 area marked by falling channel floor support-turned-resistance and the 14.6% expansion.
