US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices broke resistance at 10529, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level, exposing the 50% level at 10583. A further push beyond that eyes the 10624-37 area, marked by the underside of a rising trend line set from early April and the 61.8% Fib. Alternatively, a move back below 10529 targets falling trend line resistance-turned-support at 10489.
