US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are in consolidation mode having secured a key upside breakout three weeks ago. The first key layer of resistance remains at 10531, the May 28 high. A break above that on a daily closing basis targets the 10589-619 region. Alternatively, a turn below support in the 10474-95 area clears the way for a test of a recently broken falling channel top, now at 10395.
