US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices declined for a second consecutive day, with prices looking vulnerable to deeper losses. Near-term support is at 11980, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 11868-86 area (23.6% level, March 18 low). Alternatively, a push above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 12066 clears the way for a test of the 12149-77 zone (March 13 high, 23.6% expansion).
