US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are aiming upward after setting a double bottom at 10375 and breaking through the top of a falling channel guiding the down trend since January. Buyers have overcome resistance in the 10474-95 area, opening the door for a challenge of the next key threshold in the 10589-619 region. A further break beyond that exposes year-to-date highs above 10700. Alternatively, a reversal back below 10474 targets channel top support-turned-resistance at 10439.
