US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may be preparing to decline after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Negative RSI divergence reinforces the case for a downside scenario. Near-term support is in the 11734-67 area, marked by a rising trend line and the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 11648. Alternatively, a push above the 11854-88 area marked by the March 2009 high and the 38.2% level clears the way for a test of the 50% Fib at 11983.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices declined as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 2028.00 exposes the 1981.10-88.00 area marked by the 38.2% level and a Triangle pattern floor. Alternatively, a push above Triangle top resistance at 2057.40 targets the January 23 high at 2068.10.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices remain locked in consolidation mode. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1285.20 exposes the 38.2% level at 1305.73. Alternatively, a reversal below the 38.2% Fib retracement at 1253.77 targets the 50% threshold at 1237.18.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices pushed higher following a prolonged period of consolidation after bottoming as expected above the $45.00/barrel figure. A Bearish Engulfing candle now hints a pullback may be ahead. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 53.65 exposes the 23.6% level at 50.37. Alternatively, a reversal above the 38.2% Fib retracement at 59.08 targets the 50% threshold at 63.38.
