US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices pulled back as expected from resistance in the 10641-53 area marked by the November 12 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A bounce from support above 10589, the 23.6% Fib retracement, has put resistance back in focus. A break upward aims for the 38.2% expansion at 10839. Alternatively, a move below 10589 eyes the 38.2% retracement at 10544.
