- Support: 10426 (trend line), 10375 (double bottom)
- Resistance:10474-95, 10531 (May 28 high)
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index turned sharply lower, putting in question the fate of the upside breakout secured in mid-May. Sellers have taken out resistance-turned-support in the 10474-95 area, exposing pivotal rising trend line support set from July 2011 (now at 10426). A break below this barrier on a daily closing basis targets a double bottom at 10375. Alternatively, a reversal back above 10495 opens the door for another test of 10531, the May 28 high.
