US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are in consolidation mode after securing a key upside breakout three weeks ago. The first layer of significant resistance remains at 10531, the May 28 high. A daily close above that exposes the 10589-619 region. Support is in the 10474-95 area, with a reversal below that opening the door for a retest of a recently broken falling channel top at 10404.
