US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may be readying to turn lower after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 11858-86 area (March 18 low, 23.6% Fibonacci retracement) exposes the 38.2% level at 11679. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 12066 opens the door for a challenge of the 12149-77 zone (March 13 high, 23.6% threshold).
