THE TAKEAWAY: An attempted recovery from the US Dollar has been cut short at technical resistance while the SP 500 has pushed higher to challenge the May swing high.

Capitalize on Shifts in Market Mood with the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices turned lower as expected, finding initial support at 10803 marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern hints at the potential for renewed upside momentum. However, a Doji candle formed on a test of initial resistance at 10882 – the 23.6% level – points to indecision and injects a degree of doubt in bullish follow-through. Confirmation on a close above 10882 exposes the July 8 high at 11009. Alternatively, a reversal below support aims for the 50% Fib at 10739.

SP 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices moved higher as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A break above resistance at 1678.40, the 78.6% Fibonacci expansion, has now exposed the May 22 high at 1687.40. A further move above this barrier targets the 100% level at 1710.90. Alternatively, a reversal back below 1678.40 sees support at 1652.90, the 61.8% Fib.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices put in a Hanging Man candlestick below resistance at 1297.75, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, signaling indecision and warning that a pullback may be around the corner. Near-term support is at 1252.80, the 23.6% level, with a break beneath that eyeing swing lows at 1208.10 and 1180.15. Alternatively, a push above resistance exposes the 50% Fib at 1334.08.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern, hinting a move lower is ahead. Near-term support is at 103.93, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break beneath that targeting a rising trend line at 102.18 and the 50% level at 100.05. The bearish candle setup would be invalidated on a close above 107.41, the July 11 high.
