Although the greenback resumed recent rise and rose to as high as 113.69 yesterday, lack of follow through buying and the subsequent retreat suggest consolidation below this level would be seen and weakness to 112.80-85 (38.2% Fibonacci retracement of 111.46-113.69) is likely, however, break of support at 112.74 is needed to signal top has been formed there, bring retracement of recent rise to 112.40-45, then 112.20 but reckon 111.95-00 would hold from here.

In view of this, would not chase this rise here and would be prudent to stand aside for now. Above said resistance at 113.69 would signal recent upmove is still in progress and may extend further gain to 114.00 but loss of momentum should prevent sharp move beyond 114.25-30.
