US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices snapped a six-day losing streak, forming a bullish Piercing Line candle pattern and hinting at a rebound ahead. A daily close above the 100% Fibonacci expansion at 11809 exposes the 76.4% level at 11864. Alternatively, a move below the 123.6% Fib at 11754 opens the door for a challenge of the 138.2% expansion at 11719.
