US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices advanced as expected after completing a bullish Flag chart pattern. A break above initial resistance at 10820, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, has exposed the 38.2% level at 10899. A further push above that targets the 50% Fib at 10963. The 10820 mark has been recast as near-term support.
