US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rose as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A break of resistance at 10685, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, has exposed the 50% level at 10723. Pushing further above that exposes the 61.8% Fib at 10760. Alternatively, reversing below 10685 aims for 10612, a former range bottom.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rebounded from support in the 1773.90-78.90 area, marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement and the October 30 swing high. Buyers are now poised to test resistance at 1813.10, the record high set on November 29. A Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern continues to warn of a top in the works however, with only a close above resistance negating the setup. In such a scenario, the next level of topside resistance comes in at 1823.80 (38.2% Fibonacci expansion).

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are working to negative the potential Head and Shoulders setup identified earlier in the week. Sellers are testing below support at 1210.35, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a close beneath this barrier exposing the 50% level at 1192.62. A turn back above 1210.35 sees the first major layer of resistance at 1260.84.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are probing back above the 98.00 figure but a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern remains valid and continues to argue in favor of the downside scenario. Support is in the 95.36-74 area, marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion and the November 6 high. A further push below that eyes 93.90, the 23.6% Fib. Resistance is at 98.74, the October 28 high.
