US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rose as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A break of resistance at 10685, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, has exposed the 50% level at 10723. Pushing further above that exposes the 61.8% Fib at 10760. Alternatively, a reversal below 10685 aims for 10646, a former range top.
