where the 200-WMA is located. Bears continue to look for a close below Krw1119.0
to confirm focus on tests of 2017 lows (Krw1110.5). Bulls now look for a close
above Krw1126.8 to gain breathing room and hint at a bounce back to the 55-DMA.

above Myr4.2680 to confirm a break and hint at a move back to Myr4.3112-3282
where the 200-DMA is noted. Bulls look for a close above My4.2860 to add support
to their case. Bears now look for a close below Myr4.2100 to shift focus back to
Myr4.1800-1940 following the lack of downside follow through Friday & Monday.
DOLLAR-CNH TECHS: Bears Need Close Below Cnh6.5923

*SUP 4: Cnh6.5568 - Low Oct 11
*COMMENTARY: Daily studies correcting from modestly O/B is a concern for bulls
especially given hesitation ahead of the 100-DMA. Layers of support remain but
bears need a close below Cnh6.5923 to confirm breaks of 21 & 55-DMAs, easing
renewed bullish pressure, and below Cnh6.5568 to initially pressure Cnh6.5053.
The Cnh6.6904 resistance remains key with bulls needing a close above to
reconfirm a bullish bias and target the 200-DMA (Cnh6.7707).

*SUP 4: Php51.161 - 55-DMA
*COMMENTARY: Daily studies at O/B levels and the Bollinger top (Php51.885)
recently capping appear to be impacting with the pair looking a little heavy
after trading at fresh 2017 highs last week. Focus now shifts to 21 & 55-DMAs.
Bulls now need a close above 2017 highs to reconfirm the bullish bias and
initially focus on tests of Php52.085.

*SUP 3: Thb32.98 - Monthly Low May 1 2015 
*SUP 4: Thb32.52 - Low Apr 27 2015
*COMMENTARY: The break of Thb33.25 has so far lacked follow through but is
enough to see bulls focused on Thb33.35-41 where the 100-DMA is located. Bears
now need a close below Thb35.10 to confirm a false break higher and see
immediate focus return to 2017 lows and the Thb32.98-33.01 region as a whole.
Narrowing Bollinger bands are hinting at a break out.

*SUP 3: Idr13455 - Low Oct 5 
*SUP 4: Idr13450 - Bollinger band base
*COMMENTARY: Daily studies now correcting from O/B are a key concern for bulls
and have resulted in a break and close below the daily bull channel base
(Idr13598). Immediate focus has shifted to the 21-DMA with bears needing a close
below to add weight to their case for a move back to Idr13455. Bulls now need a
close above Idr13605 to ease bearish pressure and return immediate focus to 2017
DOLLAR-INR TECHS: Topside Failures Taking Their Toll
*RES 4: Inr65.525 - Bollinger band top 
*RES 3: Inr65.413 - High Oct 9

*COMMENTARY: Having remained capped ahead of the 21 (Inr65.085) and 200-DMAs on
the recovery from Inr64.685 the pair is again looking heavy with immediate focus
on Inr64.685. Bears need a close below to shift focus to Inr64.190-543 where 55
& 100-DMAs and the bear channel base are situated. The Bollinger base is the key
concern for bears with potential to limit follow through. Bulls need a close
above the 200-DMA to end bearish hopes and shift focus back to Inr65.413-890.
