THE TAKEAWAY: S&P 500 technical positioning warns of a turn lower ahead, hinting the safe-haven US Dollar may manage to hold up at support and position for recovery.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 9993 to challenge the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-September (now at 9970). A break below this boundary initially exposes the 38.2% level at 9945. Alternatively, a break back above 9993 aims for the November 16 high at 10071.
