AUSSIE TECHS: Focus Shifts To Dec 2016 Low
*RES 4: $0.7481 - High June 15
*RES 3: $0.7443 - Highs June 25 & 26
*RES 2: $0.7407 - High June 27
*RES 1: $0.7351 - Hourly support June 27 now resistance
*PRICE: $0.7341 @ 2130GMT
*SUP 1: $0.7323 - 2018 Low June 27 
*SUP 2: $0.7265 - Low Jan 5 2017 
*SUP 3: $0.7246 - High Dec 30 2016 now support 
*SUP 4: $0.7152 - Monthly Low Dec 26 2016
*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2018 & 18mth lows see bears shift focus to the $0.7152 Dec
2016 monthly low although the weekly bear channel base ($0.7234) may slow the
move. O/S daily studies and the Bollinger base ($0.7279) are key concerns for
bears. Bulls now need a close above $0.7443 to gain breathing room and above
$0.7481 to shift initial focus back to $0.7544-0.7627 where the 55 ($0.7544) DMA
is located. Above the 55-DMA then initially targets $0.7627-0.7735.

*SUP 3: $0.6580 - Weekly Bear channel base
*SUP 4: $0.6574 - Low Mar 16 2017
*COMMENTARY: Topside hesitation at $0.6921 has resulted in fresh 2018 & 2+yr
lows with bearish focus now on the $0.6543-0.6674 region where the weekly bear
channel base and monthly lows are situated. O/S studies and the Bollinger base
($0.6795) are key concerns for bears. Bulls now need a close above $0.6845 to
gain breathing room and above $0.6921 to shift immediate focus back to
$0.6949-0.7003 where 21 & 55-DMAs are noted.
     AUSSIE-KIWI TECHS: Aggressively Rejected Ahead Of 200-DMA

*RES 3: NZ$1.0855 - High June 27

*SUP 3: NZ$1.0709 - Low June 22
*SUP 4: NZ$1.0655 - Low May 9 & June 19
*COMMENTARY: The aggressive spike higher Wednesday was aggressively rejected
ahead of the 200-DMA leaving the pair looking offered. Bears now need a close
below NZ$1.0759 to gain breathing room and below NZ$1.0709 to initially pressure
NZ$1.0655 with below this level to add weight for a test of NZ$1.0486-1.0502
where the LT rising TL is noted. Bulls need a close above the 200-DMA to ease
bearish pressure and above NZ$1.0906 to target 2018 highs (NZ$1.1073).
     AUSSIE-YEN TECHS: Y81.93 Resistance Remains Key
*RES 4: Y82.97 - Hourly support June 14 now resistance 
*RES 3: Y82.49 - Hourly resistance June 15 
*RES 2: Y81.93 - High June 22

*SUP 3: Y80.25 - Bollinger band base
*SUP 4: Y80.24 - Low Nov 11 2016
*COMMENTARY: Topside failures ahead of the Y81.93 resistance have left the pair
looking offered and immediate focus back on 2018 lows. Bears now look for a
close below Y80.24 to reconfirm a bearish bias and shift focus to Y74.50-75.95.
O/S daily studies and the Bollinger base (Y80.25) are key concerns for bears.
Bulls still need a close above Y81.93 to gain breathing room and above Y82.97 to
shift focus to Y83.63-85.00 where the 200-DMA is noted.

*SUP 2: A$1.5650 - Low June 22 
*SUP 3: A$1.5615 - Low June 20 
*SUP 4: A$1.5541 - Low June 18
*COMMENTARY: The break of A$1.5771 and the 100-DMA (A$1.5772) has so far lacked
follow through with O/B daily studies now weighing. In saying that, bears now
look for a close below the bull channel base to confirm a false break higher and
return initial focus to A$1.5615-50. While the channel base supports bulls
remain focused on A$1.5887-1.5967 but now look for a close above A$1.5825 to add
support to their case.

the 100-WMA (95.568). A close above the 100-WMA remains needed to target 96.617.
94.028 remains key support. Bears look for a close below 94.028 to confirm a
break of the 21-DMA (94.282) and shift initial focus to 93.193.
     EURO-DOLLAR TECHS: Pressure Returns To 2018 Low

*SUP 3: $1.1470 Low July 18 2017 
*SUP 4: $1.1434 100-WMA
*COMMENTARY: The failure around the 21-DMA and bear channel top has seen

to shift immediate focus to $1.1311 although 100 ($1.1434) & 200 ($1.1399) WMAs
may support along the way. Layers of resistance are accumulating and weighing.
Bulls now need a close above $1.1598 to gain breathing room and above $1.1723 to

*SUP 4: Y108.19 100-DMA

traction above the 200-DMA (Y110.19) and shift initial focus to Y111.39-98.
Bears still need a close below Y109.01 to confirm a break of the 55-DMA
(Y109.51) and Bull channel base, initially pressuring Y107.85-108.19 where the

*COMMENTARY: Hesitation at Y128.81 sees the pair trading below the bull channel
base (Y127.78) off 2018 lows with immediate focus on Y126.22-98 today. Bears
need a close below Y126.22 to confirm immediate focus on tests of 2018 lows. O/S
daily studies and the Bollinger base (Y126.71) are concerns for bears. The
