US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices continued to edge downward, producing the lowest daily close in a week. Near-term horizontal pivot support is at 11884, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 11841. Alternatively, a move above the 23.6% Fib at 11918 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% expansion at 11966.
