needed to add weight to their case. Bulls now need a close above the 21-DMA to

*SUP 3: Krw1075.5 - 2017 Low Nov 29
*SUP 4: Krw1066.6 - 2015 Low Apr 29 2015
*COMMENTARY: The lack of follow through after recent 2017/2+ year lows now sees
the pair flirting with the 21-DMA (Krw1091.5). Bulls still need a close above
Krw1101.4 to confirm a break of the 21-DMA and shift focus to Krw1107.5-1110.5.
Bears now look for a close below Krw1088.0 to gain breathing room and below

from 2014.

noted at Myr4.1014 with bulls needing a close above to ease bearish pressure and
hint at a correction back to Myr4.1311-1423 with the 21-DMA at Myr4.1116. While
Myr4.1014 caps bears remain focused on Myr3.9750-4.0315 where the Aug monthly
