*COMMENTARY: The lack of follow through and bounce from ahead of the 55-DMA
provides bulls hope. Follow through was lacking on Thursday's bounce with bulls
still needing a close above $69.52 to shift focus back to $70.40-71.28 where
2018 highs are located. Bears still need a close below the 55-DMA to hint at a
move back to $61.21 with a close below the 100-DMA ($65.30) needed to confirm.
