The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index turned lower from a five-year high as expected after completing a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 11379, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 11291. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fib at 11434 clears the way for a test December 8 high at 11522.
