S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a Spinning Top candlestick at support marked by a rising trend line set from late February, hinting a bounce may be ahead. Near-term resistance is in the 1672.30-40 area, marked by the underside of the broken trend line as well as a horizontal pivot level (1672.40) and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break above that exposes the 38.2% level at 1688.00. Trend line support is now at 1653.80, followed by the October 9 low at 1646.90.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices recoiled from falling trend line set from late August to test below support at 1306.88, the 50% Fibonacci retracement. Continued weakness from here sees the next layer of support at 1276.97, the 61.8% Fib. Trend line resistance is now at 1321.03, followed by the 38.2% retracement at 1336.79.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are wedged between support at 100.88, a horizontal pivot dating back to April 2012, and the underside of a rising channel set from early July (104.98). This is reinforced by the top of a falling channel set from the August 28 swing high. A break upward aims for the underside of a rising trend line set from mid-April (107.58). Alternatively, a push through support initially targets supports at the 100.00 figure and 98.99.
