US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices put in a Spinning Top candle below resistance at 10796, the intersection of the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion and the top of a falling channel set from early Jul. The setup warns a move lower may be ahead. A break below initial support at 10760 exposes downside objectives at 10693 and 10646. Alternatively, a reversal above resistance targets the 38.2% Fib at 10882.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are testing a support region bracketed by a pair of trend lines set from the November 2012 swing bottom. Near-term resistance at this stage is at 1646.20, the intersection of the first layer of trend line support and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break above that exposes the 38.2% level at 1658.30. Secondary trend line support is now at 1630.40, with a move below that eyeing the August 28 low at 1626.60.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices turned lower as expected, taking out support at the bottom of a rising channel set from early August to expose the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1373.79. A break below that aims for the 38.2% level at 1336.79. The channel bottom – now at 1411.45 – has been recast as near-term resistance.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices pulled back as expected after showing a Shooting Star candlestick. Sellers are testing resistance-turned-support at the top of a Triangle chart pattern (107.29) to challenge the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 105.93. A break below that targets the Triangle bottom at 103.99. Resistance is seen at the 110.00 figure, followed by the August 28 high at 112.21.
