US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices advanced as expected after breaking higher from a Triangle chart formation. Near-term resistance is in the 12149-53 area (March 13 high, 100% Fibonacci expansion), with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 123.6% level at 12201. Alternatively, a move back below the76.4% Fib at 12105 clears the way for a test of the 61.8% expansion at 12076.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern, hinting a move lower is ahead. A break below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 2084 exposes the March 12 low at 2040.10. Alternatively, a push above the 2111.00-19.40 area (23.6% level, February 25 high) targets the 38.2% level at 2154.90.
