US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices resumed their advance having reversed upward as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 10627 exposes the 50% level at 10652. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 23.6% Fib at 10595 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% expansion at 10576.
