US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are still trading sideways in a choppy range below resistance at 10595, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A push through initial support in the 10495-500 area, marked by the 38.2% Fib expansion and the March 19 low, targets the 50% level at 10470. Alternatively, a turn back above resistance exposes the 50% Fib retracement at 10626.
