US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices re-accelerated upward, advancing to the highest level in a month. Near-term resistance is at 11960, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% level at 12037. Alternatively, a turn back below the 50% Fib at 11898 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% retracement at 11836.
