US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices paused to digest losses after a shallow rebound faltered and took prices back toward April’s bottom. Near-term support is in the 11736-7 area (February 6 low, 38.2% Fibonacci expansion), with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 11688. Alternatively, a move above the 23.6% Fib retracement at 11839 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 11901.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are edging lower as expected after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern, warning that a double top may be taking shape. A break below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 2065.70 exposes the 50% level at 2047.10. Alternatively, a move back above the 23.6% Fib at 2088.70 targets the February 25 high at 2119.40.
