US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices began to rebound after showing a Hammer candlestick above support at a rising trend line set from September 2012, with prices on pace to produce the strongest upside run in a month. Breaking above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 10576 on a daily closing basis exposes the 38.2% level at 10610. Trend line support is now at 10540, followed by the February 17 low at 10520.
