US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices appear vulnerable to a correction lower having produced a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. Negative RSI divergence bolsters the case for a downside scenario. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 11263 exposes the 23.6% Fib retracement at 11227. Alternatively, a move above the 23.6% expansion at 11298 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 11354.

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.
