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.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS - Prices are showing a Hanging Man candlestick below resistance at 1408.50, the 50% Fibonacci retracement. This barrier is reinforced by a falling trend line set from mid-October. A turn lower sees initial support at 1392.80, the 38.2% retracement, with a break below that aiming to challenge the 23.6% level at 1373.40. Alternatively, a push above resistance exposes the 1424.90-30.90 area.
