US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices found interim support and mounted a cautious recovery after declining to a two-week low. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 11887 exposes the 50% level at 11839. Alternatively, a rebound above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 11922 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 11959.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices broke below two-month trend support to challenge the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement squarely at the 2100.00 figure. A break below this barrier exposes the 50% level at 2088.60. Trend line support-turned-resistance is now at 2111.10.
