Crude Oil, Gold Prices Try to Reverse Near-Term Down Trends

Crude Oil, Gold Prices Try to Reverse Near-Term Down Trends

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • S&P 500 Accelerates Upward, Aiming for February Top
  • Gold, Crude Oil Try to Break Near-Term Down Trends

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices reversed downward as expected, making good on bearish cues telegraphed through negative RSI divergence. Near-term support is at 11965, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 11854-78 area (March 2009 high, 14.6% level). Alternatively, a move above the 12107-49 zone (38.2% Fib, March 13 high) clears the way for a test of the 50% expansion at 12221.

** The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index and the Mirror Trader USD basket are not the same product.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices continued to push higher, with buyers now aiming to challenge the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 2110.00. A daily close above this barrier exposes the 61.8% level at 2126.50. Alternatively, a reversal below the 38.2% Fib at 2093.50 targets the 23.6% expansion at 2073.10.
