*RES 3: $0.7501 - 55-DMA
*RES 2: $0.7481 - High June 15
*RES 1: $0.7444 - High July 6
*PRICE: $0.7433 @ 2130GMT
*SUP 1: $0.7413 - Hourly support July 6

*SUP 3: $0.7308 - 2018 Low July 2 
*SUP 4: $0.7265 - Low Jan 5 2017
*COMMENTARY: Bears failed to capitalise on fresh 2018 & 18mth lows last week
with the pair trading at the week's high Friday. Bulls Now need a close above
$0.7481 to hint at a move back to $0.7615-0.7735 where 100 ($0.7615) & 200
($0.7693) are located with above $0.7552 confirming. Daily studies are well
placed for a fresh leg higher before O/B is an issue. Bears now need a close
below $0.7413 today to ease pressure on the $0.7481 resistance.
     KIWI TECHS: Bears Need Close Below $0.6797
*RES 4: $0.6921 - High June 25 
*RES 3: $0.6882 - Alternating daily support/resistance

*SUP 3: $0.6686 - 2018 Low July 3
*SUP 4: $0.6674 - Monthly Low May 30 2016
*COMMENTARY: Bulls take comfort in support emerging ahead of the $0.6674 May
2016 low that along with correcting O/S studies provided the impetus for a
bounce last week. This week bulls look for a close above the 55-DMA ($0.6937) to
hint at a move back to $0.7059-0.7157 where 100 ($0.7089) & 200 ($0.7081) DMAs
and key WMAs are clustered. Bears now need a close below $0.6797 to ease
pressure on the 21-DMA and below $0.6741 to reconfirm focus on $0.6674-86.
     AUSSIE-KIWI TECHS: Bears Need Close Below NZ$1.0830

*SUP 2: NZ$1.0830 - Hourly support June 28
*SUP 3: NZ$1.0775 - Low June 27
*SUP 4: NZ$1.0759 - Hourly support June 26
*COMMENTARY: O/B daily studies and the Bollinger top (NZ$1.0967) impacted with a
lack of follow through on Tuesday's 5mth highs and the pair remaining a little
offered. The NZ$1.0830 support is key. Bears look for a close below NZ$1.0830 to
confirm a break below the 200-DMA (NZ$1.0862), easing bullish pressure and
returning focus to NZ$1.0775-1.0810 where 21 & 55-DMAs are located. Bulls now
need a close above NZ$1.1006 to reconfirm a bullish bias targeting 2018 highs.

*RES 4: Y82.57 - 100-DMA

*SUP 3: Y80.99 - Low July 2
*SUP 4: Y81.05 - Low June 29
*COMMENTARY: Despite bearish pressure on 2018 lows the past couple of weeks
bears have failed to make fresh 2018 lows. The bounce last week saw bulls gain
breathing room but key MAs clustered tightly Y82.45-57 are a concern. Bulls need
a close above the 100-DMA (Y82.57) to end bearish hopes and shift focus back to
Y83.63-85.00 where the 200-DMA is noted. While the 100-DMA caps bears target a
break lower with below Y81.59 to gain breathing room and below Y80.24 to target
Y74.50-75.95.

needed to confirm focus on A$1.6056-1.6140 where 2018 & monthly highs are noted.
O/B studies remain the key concern for bulls. While A$1.5887 caps there is an
increased risk of tests of support layers A$1.5615-1.5700 where the 21
(A$1.5700) & 55-DMAs are located.

pressure on the 55-DMA and bears now focused on a break of 92.837 needed to
pressure 100 (91.941) & 200 DMAs. Bulls now need a close above 94.728 to gain
breathing room and return pressure to 95.140-531.

($1.2019) & 200 ($1.1984) DMAs are noted. Bears now need a close below $1.1670

*SUP 3: Y109.90 55-DMA 
*SUP 4: Y109.01 Hourly support June 1
*COMMENTARY: Topside hesitation is a concern with Y111.39-112.04 where May highs
are noted remaining key. Bulls look for a close above Y112.04 to end bearish
hopes, shifting immediate focus to Y113.23-44 where the 200-WMA (Y113.23) is
noted and overall focus to Y114.72 Nov highs. Bears now need a close below the

shift immediate focus to Y131.37-132.59 where the 200-DMA (Y131.95) is noted.

key supports and initially target $1204.5. Bulls need a close above $1262.7 to

     NYMEX WTI TECHS: (Q18) Below $72.14 To Shift Focus Lower

*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2018 & 3+yr highs Tuesday remained capped ahead of daily and
weekly bull channel tops. The Bollinger top ($76.02) and very O/B daily studies
remain key concerns for bulls and limit follow through. Below $72.14 is now
needed to hint at a move back to $69.44-70.02 with a close below $71.40 to add
weight to their case. While $72.14 caps bulls retain an advantage with focus
remaining on bull channel tops.
