US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices moved lower as expected after putting in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 10942 exposes the 50% level at 10880. Alternatively, a turn above the 23.6% Fib at 11019 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% retracement at 11066.
