The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index stalled below its five-year high after posting the largest daily advance in 18 months. Negative RSI divergence warns of ebbing upside momentum, hinting a double top may be in the works. Near-term support is at 11489, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 11379. Alternatively, a turn above the December 8 high at 11522 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 11577.
