Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices declined for a fourth consecutive day, dropping to the weakest level in nearly two months. Near-term support is at 11864, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 100% level at 11809. Alternatively, a rebound above the 61.8% Fib at 11899 clears the way for a test of the 50% threshold at 11927.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern, suggesting a double top may be taking shape at 2119.40, the February 25 high. A break below the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 2102.90 exposes the 23.6% level at 2088.70.
