US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices remain in digestion mode after prices slid to the four-month low. A daily close below the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion at 11638 exposes the 76.4% level at 11576. Alternatively, a push above the 50% Fib at 11688 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 11737.

Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 2099.10 targets the 14.6% expansion at 2084.90.
