US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern above support at 10401, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion, hinting a bounce may be ahead. Breaking above the 61.8% expansion at 10439 exposes the 10475-84 area, marked by the underside of a previously broken falling channel and the 23.6% Fib retracement. Alternatively, a reversal downward below support aims for the 100% expansion at 10339.
