Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

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 trend line support is in the 11740-73 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 11653. Alternatively, a push above the 11854-76 zone (March 2009 high, 14.6% Fib expansion) clears the way for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 11963.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are in consolidation mode after declining as expected following the appearance of a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 2028.00 exposes the 1982.70-88.00 area marked by the 38.2% level and a rising trend line. Alternatively, a push above the January 9 high at 2068.60 targets the December 29 top at 2092.60.

Alternatively, a move above the 50% Fib at 1237.18 targets the 38.2% retracement at 1253.77.
