*SUP 4: Sgd1.2955 - Low Nov 27 2014
*COMMENTARY: 2018 and 3+yr lows continued last week although the lack of follow
through is a concern given correcting O/S studies and momentum divergence. Bulls
need a close above Sgd1.3168 to ease bearish pressure and above Sgd1.3223 to
confirm a break of the 21-DMA and shift initial focus to Sgd1.3273-1.3369 where
the 55-DMA is noted. Bears now need a close below Sgd1.3066 to retain initial
focus on Sgd1.2955.

*COMMENTARY: The recovery from recent 2018 lows has resulted in closes above the
bear channel top (Krw1068.7) with the pair pressuring the Bollinger band top
(Krw1066.7). Bulls now look for a close above Krw1076.0 to confirm an easing of
bearish pressure and above Krw1082.8 to shift focus to Krw1096.2-1110.5 where
the 100-DMA (Krw1101.7) is noted. Bears need a close below the 21-DMA to ease
pressure on resistance layers and reconfirm focus on Krw1031.0-1045.6.

*SUP 4: Myr3.7795 - Low July 10

bears given daily studies correcting from O/S. Bulls continue to look for a
close above Myr3.9215 to ease bearish pressure and above Myr3.9689 to confirm a
break of the 21-DMA and hint at a move to Myr4.0450-0626 where the 55-DMA is
noted with above Myr4.0200 to confirm. Bears remain focused on 2016 lows while
Myr3.9215 caps.

base key concerns for bears. Bears continue to look for a close below Cnh6.2607
to confirm focus on Cnh6.2130-2293. The Cnh6.3591 resistance remains key with
bulls needing a close above to ease bearish pressure. A close above the 21-DMA
(Cnh6.4217) is needed to hint at a correction back to Cnh6.5017-5449 where the
55-DMA is noted.

pressure and below Php50.720 to shift focus back to key DMAs Php50.546-600 where
21, 55 & 200-DMAs are clustered. Bulls currently focus on 2017 highs which
