US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices look poised to push to new year-to-date highs having cleared yet another layer of chart resistance. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 11374 exposes the 50% level at 11422. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 11315 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 11278.

** The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index and the Mirror Trader USD basket are not the same product.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices continue to march higher after clearing resistance at 2051.00, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with buyers aiming to challenge the 38.2% level at 2081.20. A further push beyond that targets the 50% Fib at 2105.60. Alternatively, a reversal back below 2051.00 on a daily closing basis targets the 2022.10-32.30 area marked by the 14.6% expansion and the September 19 high.

Alternatively, a reversal below the 1178.86-80.84 zone (December 2013 low, 23.6% Fib) targets the 14.6% retracement at 1161.49.

Alternatively, a reversal back below the 14.6% Fib at 79.81 targets the November 14 low at 76.74.
