US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may be carving out a top as negative RSI divergence warns of ebbing upside momentum. A daily close below rising trend line support at 10931 exposes the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 10869. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 10957 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 11008.
