US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are digesting gains having hit a four-month high after rising as expected following the formation of a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern. Near-term resistance is at 10560, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, with a daily close above that exposing the 61.8% level at 10606. Alternatively, a reversal below resistance-turned-support in the 10513-27 area marked by the May 28 high and 38.2% Fib opens the door for a test of a horizontal pivot in play since late April at 10481.
