US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices stalled to consolidate gains after establishing yet another five-year high ahead of the much-anticipated US Employment report. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansionat 11457 exposes the 50% level at 11511. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 11391 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 11350.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices paused to consolidate, with negative RSI divergence warning of ebbing upside momentum and hinting a turn lower may be ahead. A drop below the 2040.10-49.10 area marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement and the December 1 low exposes the 2016.80-22.10 zone (23.6% level, September 19 high). Alternatively, a move above the 2075.90-86.60 region (November 26 high, 14.6% Fib expansion) targets the 23.6% expansion at 2109.80.
