US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices rose as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern above support at 10661, marked by the bottom of a rising channel set from November and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. The bulls are now testing resistance at 10718 – a horizontal pivot barrier in play since mid-December. A daily close above this threshold initially exposes the January high at 10756, followed by the channel top at 10789. Alternatively, a turn below support in the 1.3545-52 area targets the 38.2% Fib at 10602.
