US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices moved higher as expected after producing a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. A daily close above channel top resistance at 11860 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 11888. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 11829 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% level at 11792.

Alternatively, a push above the 2127.60-37.10 area (May 19, June 18 highs) targets channel top resistance at 2156.20.
