US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices resumed its advance, touching the highest level in six weeks. Near-term resistance is at 12037, the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the March 13 high at 12149. Alternatively, a reversal below the 61.8% Fib at 11960 opens the door for a challenge of the 50% retracement at 11898.
