US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices advanced as expected after prices put in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 11937, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 11985. Alternatively, a move below the 38.2% Fib at 11888 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% level at 11829.
