  • RES 3: 151.13 - High Mar 3
  • RES 2: 150.44 - High Mar 14
  • RES 1: 150.14/17 - High Apr 1 and key resistance / Intraday high
  • PRICE: 149.99 @ 15:13 BST May 27
  • SUP 1: 148.96/72 - Low May 10 / Low Mar 29 and the bear trigger
  • SUP 2: 148.69 - 3.0% Lower Bollinger Band
  • SUP 3: 148.16 - 1.0% 10-dma envelope

The primary downtrend in JGBs remains intact although a corrective cycle is still in play and the contract maintains a firmer short-term tone. Price has traded higher again and is challenging key resistance at 150.14, Apr 1 high. A clear break of this level would signal scope for a stronger corrective cycle and open 150.44, the Mar 14 high. A reversal lower would signal a resumption of bearish activity and open 148.96 and major support at 148.72.
