US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices started to edge higher as expected after forming a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. The bulls failed to push through horizontal pivot resistance at 10718 however, recoiling to retest support in the 10661-71 area (marked by the bottom of a rising channel set from November and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement). A break lower initially exposes the 38.2% Fib at 10602. Alternatively, a reversal above 10718 aims for the January high at 10756.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices continue to test support at a rising trend line set from February 2013 (now at 1741.70). This barrier is reinforced by the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion at 1744.60. A break downward initially targets the 100% level at 1725.40. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 61.8% level at 1756.50 on a daily closing basis sees the next upside barrier at 1766.20, the 50% Fib.
