The US Dollar is trading higher versus the Chinese Yuan in offshore trade, as the pair broke above the 6.6500 technical level after finding support at the July lows around 6.6224.

The break above resistance at 6.6500 might now shift focus to intermediate resistance at 6.6860 followed by the 6.7 figure.

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

A move lower seems likely to shift focus to 6.6500 again for possible support, followed by the aforementioned lows at 6.6224.
