THE TAKEAWAY: US Dollar technical positioning hints a recovery may be ahead after a period of consolidation, while the S&P 500 recovery may be running out of steam.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are stalling at the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-September (now at 9965). An Inverted Hammer candlestick hints a rebound may be ahead. Near-term resistance is at 9993, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a push above that aiming to challenge the November 16 high at 10071. Alternatively, a break below support initially exposes the 38.2% level at 9945.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices edged above resistance at a falling trend line set from mid-October and overcame the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 1408.50. The bulls now aim to challenge the 1424.90-30.90 area, with a break above that exposing the 76.4% Fib at 1443.60. However, a Doji candlestick points to indecision and hints a pullback may be ahead. The 1408.50 level has been recast as near-term support, with a drop back below that exposing the trend line (now at 1398.70) and the 38.2% retracementat 1392.80.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices turned lower after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement (1748.70), dropping past the 38.2% level at 1719.60. Sellers now target the 23.6% Fib at 1701.60, a barrier reinforced by a rising trend line set from late June (now at 1700.18). A push below that initially targets the November 5 low at 1672.50. The 1719.60 level has been recast as initial resistance, with a reversal back above that aiming for the 50% retracement at 1734.15.
