US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rebounded from resistance-turned-support at the top of a falling channel set from July (now in the 10499-527 area) as expected. Near-term resistance is at 10653, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a push above that targeting the 38.2% level at 10839. Alternatively, a reversal below support initially eyes the November 6 low at 10492.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices pulled back as expected, completing a bearish Three Inside Down candlestick pattern. Follow-through has been lackluster however, with prices issuing a strong bounce from support-turned-resistance at 1778.10. The bearish setup needs a close above the November 18 high at 1802.40 to be invalidated however. Alternatively, a reversal below 1778.10 targets the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1765.70.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices recoiled from resistance at a falling trend line set from late October. A break below support at 1249.18, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, has exposed the 76.4% level at 1222.60. A reversal back above 1249.18 aims for 1270.67, the intersection of the 50% Fib and the trend line.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices continue to consolidate above the November 14 low 92.49, with positive RSI divergence hinting a bounce may be ahead. Initial resistance is at 95.37, marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion and reinforced by the top of a falling channel set from late August. A break above that initially exposes the 23.6% level at 97.14. Alternatively, a move below 92.49 targets the channel bottom at 89.71.
