US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices aretrying to clear the way for continued gains after touching the strongest level in over four years. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 11033 exposes the 50% level at 11074. Alternatively, a reversal below the intersection of a rising trend line and the 23.6% Fib at 10983 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 10953.
