US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices corrected lower but overall positioning continues to favor strength after prices set a double bottom and cleared channel resistance guiding the down trend from January. The index is testing resistance-turned-support in the 10474-95 area, with a reversal back below that opening the door for a retest of the channel top at 10427. Near-term resistance is at 10531, the May 28 high. A move above that aims for the 10589-619 region.
