*RES 3: 97.875 - 200-DMA 
*RES 2: 97.830 - Lows May 30 & 31 now resistance 
*RES 1: 97.813 - 100-DMA

*SUP 3: 97.700 - Monthly Low May 17 
*SUP 4: 97.675 - 2018 Low Apr 24
*COMMENTARY: Rejection ahead of the weekly bear channel top off 2016 highs and
the 55-WMA (97.933) has now resulted in closes below key DMAs with bears now
looking for a close below 99.770 to return focus to 2018 lows. Correcting O/B
studies add weight to the bearish case. Bulls now need a close above 97.930 to
gain breathing room and a close above the 200-DMA to confirm focus on
97.9100-9550 where monthly and yearly highs are noted.
     AUSSIE 10-YR TECHS: (M18) Bulls Need Close Above 97.2900 
*RES 4: 97.4100 - Monthly High May 30

*SUP 2: 97.2115 - 100-DMA
*SUP 3: 97.2040 - 21-DMA
*SUP 4: 97.1500 - Alternating daily support/resistance
*COMMENTARY: The rejection around the 100-WMA (97.4045) left the contract
looking offered and returned focus to 97.1500-2381 where key DMAs are located.
Bears need a close below 97.1500 to confirm breaks of DMAs and to shift
immediate focus back to 97.0450-1100 where the weekly LT bull channel base and
2018 low are noted. Bulls now need a close above 97.2900 to gain breathing room.

*SUP 3: 118-30  Low May 24
*SUP 4: 118-19  High May 22 now support
*COMMENTARY: The lack of follow through on fresh 3mth highs was less than ideal
last week given O/B daily studies. Bears now look for a close below 118-30 to
confirm a break of the 21-DMA and shift initial focus back to 2018 lows.
Correcting O/B studies are adding weight to the bearish case. Bulls now need a
close above 119-30 to gain breathing room and above 120-16 to shift immediate
focus to 121-03 highs from last week.

*SUP 4: 2.821 - Hourly support May 30
*COMMENTARY: The recovery from last week's low sees the yield pressuring the
21-DMA. Bulls now need a close above 3.014 to confirm a break of the 21-DMA and
add support to the initial case for a retest of 2018 highs. Correcting O/S
studies add support to the bullish case. Bears now need a close below 2.902 to

May lows are noted.

confidence. Bulls now need a close above 150.90 to gain breathing room and above
