US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rose as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A break below support at 10657 – a formerly broken range top – exposes the 10612-18 area (marked by the range bottom as well as the lower boundary of a rising channel set from early November). Resistance is at 10685, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that targeting the 50% level at 10723.
