    US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS - Prices look poised to continue higher having set a critical double bottom at 10375, the October 2013 floor. An upward trend change signaled by a break above resistance at the top of a falling channel set from January saw follow-through with a break of resistance in the 10474-95 area. The bulls now aim to challenge the 10589-619 region, with a move above that opening the door for an advance to year-to-date highs. Alternatively, a reversal back below 10474 eyes channel top support-turned-resistance at 10434.
