Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices resumed their advance after a brief respite, putting in the largest daily advance in five weeks. Near-term resistance is at 11511, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 11565. Alternatively, a turn below the 38.2% Fib at 11457 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% expansion at 11391.

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 2041.50-49.10 area marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement and the December 1 low exposes the 2018.10-22.10 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.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are turning lower from resistance at a falling trend line set from early July. A break below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1189.74 exposes the 23.6% level at 1170.39. Alternatively, a daily close above the trend line (now at 1214.07) targets the December 1 high at 1221.13.
