*COMMENTARY: The recovery from recent 2017 lows looks to be in trouble with the
21-DMA having capped the break of Sgd1.3592 Thursday. The pair is again looking
heavy with bears now needing a close below Sgd1.3530 to reconfirm focus on
Sgd1.3430-67 where the 200-WMA and monthly lows are located. Daily studies are
well placed for a fresh leg lower. Bulls now need a close above Sgd1.3638 to

In saying that, layers of resistance remain Krw1128.7-1133.5 with bulls needing
a close above the 55-DMA to end bearish hopes and shift focus to
Krw1140.1-1148.1 where the 200-DMA (Krw1146.2) is located. While the 55-DMA caps
bears retain an advantage and look for a close below Krw1119.0 to reconfirm
focus on tests of 2017 lows.

resistance Thb33.53-91 where the longer term bear channel top and 100-DMA are
