The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar put in a Shooting Star candlestick pattern below multi-year resistance, hinting a pullback may be ahead. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 11772 exposes the resistance-turned-support at 11715, the January 8 high. Alternatively, a push above the 11854-88 area marked by the March 2009 high and the 38.2% level opens the door for a challenge of the 50% Fib at 11983.
