US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices turned lower as expected, with a bearish Evening Star candle pattern of deeper losses in the cards ahead. Near-term support is at 11599, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 11527. Alternatively, a turn above the 23.6% Fib expansion at 11699 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 11796.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices declined as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A secondary top may now be in place as a corrective bounce is capped by a Dark Cloud Cover formation. Breaking below rising trend line support at 2010.40 on a daily closing basis exposes the 38.2% level at 1988.00. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 23.6% Fib at 2028.00 aims for the January 9 high at 2068.60.
