US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices advanced as expected after prices put in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 11888, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 11937. Alternatively, a move below the 23.6% Fib at 11829 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% level at 11792.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices declined as expected after negative RSI divergence argued for ebbing upside momentum. From here, a break below trend line resistance-turned-support at 2097.60exposes the channel floor at 2086.20. Alternatively, a push above the 2127.60-37.10 area (May 19, June 18 highs) targets channel top resistance at 2155.70.
