THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has shown impressive resilience, holding above key support despite an S&P 500 rally that might have been expected to sink the haven currency.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are stalling at the bottom of a rising channel set from mid-September (now at 9961). A break below this boundary initially exposes the 38.2% level at 9945. Near-term resistance lines up at 9993, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a push above that aiming to challenge the November 16 high at 10071.
