US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices reversed downward as expected, making good on bearish cues telegraphed through negative RSI divergence. Near-term support is at 11965, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 11854-78 area (March 2009 high, 14.6% level). Alternatively, a move above the 12107-49 zone (38.2% Fib, March 13 high) clears the way for a test of the 50% expansion at 12221.
