The US Dollar Index is poised for a test of the October opening-range lows / key support at “105.51/63- a region defined by the 23.6% retracement of the yearly range, the January high and the March high-day close.” Looking for a reaction there IF reached with a break / daily close below threatening a deeper correction towards the 100% at 104.97.

Initial resistance is eyed at the upper parallel (currently ~106.40s) and is backed by 106.65. A breach / daily close above key resistance at 107.07/17 is ultimately needed to mark resumption of the broader USD uptrend.

Gold has surged more than 10.3% off the monthly low with the rally now testing a key technical confluence at 1977/87- a region defined by the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the May decline and the objective July high. The immediate advance may be vulnerable here.

Initial support 1953 – a break below this threshold would threaten a deeper correction with the broader outlook still constructive while above 1903. A topside breach / close above this pivot zone would mark resumption of the monthly uptrend towards the next major resistance hurdle at the 2040/50 (the April / May high-day closes and the 2022 high-day close).

As discussed in the webinar, the S&P 500 is reacting to a critical support confluence today at 4179/96- a region defined by the 52-week moving average, the 38.2% retracement of the 2022 advance, and the objective February swing high. Looking for a reaction off this mark with the immediate short-bias vulnerable while above.

Resistance now eyed at the August 2022 swing high near ~4325 with near-term bearish invalidation now lowered to the October range high at 4396. A break / weekly close below this key zone would threaten another accelerated decline towards the lower parallel (currently ~4100) and the 50% retracement / May low at 4048/51.
