THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar found support and is resuming a push higher, yielding the highest close in three months, while the S&P 500 has stalled at chart resistance.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices recovered from support above support near the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement (9993), a barrier reinforced by a rising trend line set from the October 17 low (10002). Initial resistance is at 10071, the November 16 high, with a push above that targeting the 38.2% Fib expansion at 10123. Alternatively, a drop below 9993 exposes the 38.2% Fib at 9945.
