US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may be carving out a top after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candle pattern. Near-term support is at 11599, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 11527. Alternatively, a turn above the 23.6% Fib expansion at 11699 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 11796.
