US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are retesting resistance-turned-support at 10509, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level. A break downward initially targets a rising trend line set from early April, now at 10480. Near-term resistance is in the 10588-604 area, marked by the top of a falling channel established from early July and the 38.2% level. A break above that exposes the 50% Fib at 10682.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern, arguing for a reversal downward ahead. Follow-through has been lacking thus far but the setup remains valid absent a daily close above the formation’s top at 1778.90, the October 30 high. Initial support is at 1747.70, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break below that initially exposes the 38.2% level at 1728.50.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke below support at 1318.73, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, exposing the 38.2% level at 1292.15. A further push beneath that eyes the 50% Fib at 1270.67. Alternatively, a break back above 1318.73 targets the 14.6% expansion at 1335.12.
