US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices appear to be resuming its downward reversal after retesting broken trend line support as resistance. 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 rebound above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 11989 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 12027.
