US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Selling slowed near monthly lows after three days of aggressive downward momentum. Near-term support is at 11950, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 11899. Alternatively, a turn above the 38.2% Fib at 12000 clears the way for a test of trend line support-turned-resistance at 12034.
