US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices look poised to continue higher after prices advanced to the highest level in over 11 years. Near-term resistance is at 12107, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 12221. Alternatively, a below the 23.6% Fib at 11965 opens the door for a challenge of the 11854-76 area (14.6% Fibonacci expansion, March 2009 high).
