US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are working on a seventh consecutive advance, extending to a new four-year high. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 11130 exposes the 50% level at 11200. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 23.6% Fib at 11043 clears the way for a test of rising trend line support at 11016.
