US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are testing below support at 10642, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion. A daily close below this barrier targets the 10617-20 area, marked by the 100% Fib and a horizontal support shelf dating back to mid-December 2013. A further push below this boundary exposes the 123.6% expansion at 10592. Alternatively, a reversal above the 61.8% level at 10658 aims for the underside of a rising channel set from November 2013, now at 10670.
