US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices areattempting to rebuild upside momentum after finding range bottom support. Near-term resistance is at 12026, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 12056. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib retracement at 11985 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 11937.
