JGB TECHS
  • RES 3: 151.13 - High Mar 3
  • RES 2: 150.44 - High Mar 14
  • RES 1: 150.14 - High Apr 1
  • PRICE: 149.80 @ 20:30 BST May 20
  • SUP 1: 148.72 - Low Mar 29
  • SUP 2: 148.79 - 3.0% Lower Bollinger Band
  • SUP 3: 147.95 - 1.0% 10-dma envelope

The primary downtrend in JGBs remains intact although a corrective cycle is in play and the contract maintains a firmer short-term tone. Key resistance to watch is at 150.14, Apr 1 high. The breach, in March, of the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the 2015 - 2020 rally at 149.65 strengthened a bearish theme and opens 148.79/147.95, which marks both the 3.0% Lower Bollinger Band and the 1.0% 10-dma envelope. A break of 150.14 would alter the picture.
