US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices corrected sharply lower, producing the largest daily drawdown in two weeks. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 12066 exposes the 14.6% Fib retracement at 11980. Alternatively, a push above the 12149-77 area (March 13 high, 23.6% expansion) opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% level at 12356.
