US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices continued to push downward following yesterday’s FOMC-inspired break of range support. A daily close below the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion at 11717 exposes the 11634-40 zone (May 14 low, 76.4% level). Alternatively, a push above the 50% Fib at 11779 clears the way for a test of the 11834-41 area (horizontal pivot, 38.2% expansion).
