US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices corrected upward as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candle pattern. Near-term channel resistance is at 11866, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 11901. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% level at 11839 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% Fib at 11801.
