US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices 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.
