US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are attempting to build higher from resistance-turned-support at 10509, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level. Near-term resistance is in the 10583-604 area, marked by the top of a falling channel established from early July and the 38.2% level. A break above that exposes the 50% Fib at 10682. Alternatively, a turn below support initially targets a rising trend line set from early April, now at 10476.
