US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices paused for a breather after last week’s aggressive downturn. A move below resistance-turned-support in the 10474-95 area has exposed pivotal rising trend line support set from July 2011 (now at 10429). A breach beneath this barrier on a daily closing basis clears the way for a challenge of a double bottom at 10375. Alternatively, a reversal back above 10495 opens the door for another test of 10531, the May 28 high.
