JGB futures remain below the Apr 23 high of 151.66 and recent price action has worked against the multi-month uptrend. Trendline support drawn off the Feb 26 low has been breached. This switches the outlook more neutral while also highlighting the potential for a bearish resumption near-term. Initial support is at 151.17, a retracement and a break would strengthen a bearish case. On the upside, key resistance has been defined at 151.66.
