US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are attempting to launch a recovery after turning aggressively lower, as expected. A daily close above the 12107-49 area (38.2% Fibonacci expansion, March 13 high), exposes the 50% level at 12221. Alternatively, a move below the 23.6% Fibat 11965 opens the door for a challenge of exposing the 11854-78 area (March 2009 high, 14.6% expansion).
