THE TAKEAWAY: US Dollar technical positioning is now showing signs of a possible reversal lower as prices test resistance marked by the 2012 yearly high.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern below resistance in the 10323-26 area, marked by the 123.6% Fibonacci expansion and the 2012 yearly high. The setup hints a move lower is ahead, with negative RSI divergence reinforcing the case for a downside scenario. Near-term support is at 10248, the 100% Fib, with a break below that exposing rising channel resistance-turned-support at 10221.
