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 10410. Near-term resistance is at 10531, the May 28 high. A move above that aims for the 10589-619 region.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices broke support at a rising trend line support set from the May 1 low to challenge the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 102.11. A break below this barrier on a daily closing basis exposes the 50% level at 101.38. Alternatively, a reversal back above the trend line (now recast as resistance at 103.54) targets a downward-sloping barrier connecting major swing highs since early March, currency at 104.26.
