US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may be gearing up for a turn lower after producing a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 11211, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 11143-55 area (October 3 high, 38.2% level). Alternatively, a reversal above the 50% Fib expansion at 11295 clears the way for a test of the 61.8% Fib threshold at 11329.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are treading water after setting yet another record high last week. Near-term resistance is at 2051.00, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 2081.20. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib at 2032.30 aims for resistance-turned-support at 2022.10, the September 19 high.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are attempting to launch a recovery, with a break above support-turned-resistance marked by the October 3 low at 1189.89 exposing the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1212.23. Alternatively, a reversal below the 1178.86-80.84 area (December 2013 low, 23.6% level) targets the 14.6% retracement at 1161.49.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may be gearing up for a recovery after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A break above the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 79.81 exposes the intersection of a falling trend line and the 23.6% level at 81.71. Near-term support is at 76.74, the November 14 low.
