US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rose as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A break below resistance in the 10640-46 area, marked by a range bottom in play since mid-December, a rising channel top and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, exposes the 38.2% level at 10585. Alternatively, moving above range top resistance at 10718 targets the channel top at 10755.
