US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices turned lower as expected, with prices digesting losses near monthly lows. A daily close below the 11858-86 area (23.6% Fibonacci retracement, March 18 low) exposes the 38.2% level at 11679. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 12066 clears the way for a test of the 12149-77 zone (23.6% threshold, March 13 high).
