The US Dollar is edging slightly lower versus the Chinese Yuan in offshore trade, as the pair held below the 6.6500 level as resistance for the last three trading days.

The hold below 6.6500 may now shift focus to possible support at a zone under the short term low at 6.6224, followed by the 6.6 handle.

On the other hand, upside momentum seems likely to have eyes on prior resistance levels at 6.6860 and the 6.7 handle.

For bulls to really show strength, the price might need to break and hold above those recent highs.
