THE TAKEAWAY: Technical positioning hints the S&P 500 may be on the cusp of a reversal lower, hinting a pick-up in haven demand may cut short recent US Dollar weakness.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke through support at the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-September, exposing the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 9933. A sustained push below that targets the 38.2% level at 9849. Channel bottom support-turned-resistance is now at 9978.
