DOLLAR-SING TECHS: Lacks Follow Through Below 200-DMA
*RES 4: Sgd1.3496 - High Dec 18 
*RES 3: Sgd1.3489 - 2018 High May 10 
*RES 2: Sgd1.3450 - 55-WMA 
*RES 1: Sgd1.3417 - Low May 29 now resistance
*PRICE: Sgd1.3365 @ 2300GMT
*SUP 1: Sgd1.3328 - Low June 4 
*SUP 2: Sgd1.3285 - Low May 4 
*SUP 3: Sgd1.3261 - 55-DMA 
*SUP 4: Sgd1.3221 - 100-DMA
*COMMENTARY: Dips below the 200-DMA (Sgd1.3360) continue to lack follow through
with bears now needing a close below Sgd1.3328 to confirm a break and shift
initial focus to Sgd1.3197-1.3285 where 55 &100-DMAs are located. Bulls now need
a close above Sgd1.3417 to gain breathing room and above Sgd1.3538 to confirm
traction above the 55-WMA and to focus on 200 (Sgd1.3625) & 100 (Sgd1.3679)
     DOLLAR-WON TECHS: Gaining Traction Below 55-DMA
*RES 4: Krw1089.6 - 200-DMA
*RES 3: Krw1087.6 - High Mar 1
*RES 2: Krw1086.7 - High May 21
*RES 1: Krw1071.8 - 55-DMA
*PRICE: Krw1070.7 @ 2300GMT
*SUP 1: Krw1065.6 - Bollinger band base
*SUP 2: Krw1063.3 - Low May 10
*SUP 3: Krw1058.7 - Low Apr 19
*SUP 4: Krw1052.0 - 2018 Low Apr 2
*COMMENTARY: Bears take comfort in closes below the 55-DMA with immediate
bearish focus on Krw1063.3 and a close below this level needed to initially
target 2018 lows (Krw1052.0). Bulls continue to look for a close above the
55-DMA to gain breathing room and return focus to Krw1086.7-1089.6 where the
200-DMA is located. The Bollinger base is the key concern for bears with
potential to limit follow through.
     DOLLAR-MYR TECHS: Myr3.9620 Support Now Key
*RES 4: Myr4.0450 - Monthly Low Dec 5 now resistance 
*RES 3: Myr4.0260 - High Jan 3 
*RES 2: Myr4.0088 - 200-WMA 
*RES 1: Myr3.9930 - High May 30
*PRICE: Myr3.9700 @ 2300GMT
*SUP 1: Myr3.9663 - 21-DMA 
*SUP 2: Myr3.9620 - Low May 22 
*SUP 3: Myr3.9400 - Low May 14 
*SUP 4: Myr3.9250 - High Mar 16 now support
*COMMENTARY: Fresh 4mth highs continued Tuesday with immediate focus on the
200-WMA. Bulls need a close above the 200-WMA to initially target the 200-DMA
(Myr4.0356). Modestly O/B daily studies remain a concern for bulls as does the
Bollinger top (Myr3.9943). Bears now need a close below Myr3.9620 to ease
bullish pressure and below the 100-DMA (Myr3.9162) to hint at a move back to
2018 lows.
     DOLLAR-CNH TECHS: Cnh6.3889 Support Key Today
*RES 4: Cnh6.4657 - Low Jan 8 now resistance 
*RES 3: Cnh6.4581 - 200-DMA 
*RES 2: Cnh6.4475 - High Jan 16 
*RES 1: Cnh6.4322 - High May 30
*PRICE: Cnh6.4032 @ 2300GMT
*SUP 1: Cnh6.3889 - High May 25 now support
*SUP 2: Cnh6.3735 - 21-DMA
*SUP 3: Cnh6.3642 - High May 22 now support
*SUP 4: Cnh6.3309 - 21-WMA
*COMMENTARY: The rally from dips back to the 21-DMA is now hesitating ahead of
the 200-DMA with daily studies looking to correct from modestly O/B levels less
than ideal for bulls. Bears look for a close below Cnh6.3642 to confirm a break
of the 21-DMA and to shift initial focus back to 6.3268-3309 where 55 & 100-DMAs
and the 21-WMA are located. Bulls now need a close above Cnh6.4322 to reconfirm
focus on 200-DMA and WMAs.
     DOLLAR-PHP TECHS: Bears Need Close Below 21-DMA
*RES 4: Php53.071 - High July 3 2006 
*RES 3: Php52.940 - High July 25 2006 
*RES 2: Php52.817 - Bollinger band top 
*RES 1: Php52.773 - 2018 High May 30
*PRICE: Php52.629 @ 2300GMT
*SUP 1: Php52.374 - 21-DMA 
*SUP 2: Php52.161 - 55-DMA 
*SUP 3: Php52.056 - High May 10 now support 
*SUP 4: Php51.955 - Daily Bull channel base
*COMMENTARY: Support emerging on dips back towards the 21 & 55-DMAs resulted in
fresh 2018 & nearly 12yr highs although follow through has been lacking courtesy
of the Bollinger band top. Bulls focus on Php53.940-53.071 last seen in July
2006. The 21-DMA is noted at Php52.374 with bears now needing a close below to
gain breathing room and target a correction back to Php51.953-161 where the 5 &
100-DMAs and daily bull channel base are found.
     DOLLAR-THB TECHS: Hesitating Ahead Of 200-DMA
*RES 4: Thb32.58 - 2018 High Jan 2 
*RES 3: Thb32.39 - Low Jan 2 now support 
*RES 2: Thb32.21 - 200-DMA 
*RES 1: Thb32.18 - High May 30
*PRICE: Thb31.99 @ 2300GMT
*SUP 1: Thb31.82 - Low May 28 
*SUP 2: Thb31.75 - Low May 14 
*SUP 3: Thb31.60 - 55-DMA 
*SUP 4: Thb31.58 - Low May 3
*COMMENTARY: Hesitation ahead of the 200-DMA has left the pair looking a little
offered with focus back on the Thb31.75-82 support region today. Bears now look
for a close below Thb31.75 to shift initial focus back to Thb31.54-60 where 55 &
100-DMAs are situated. Bulls now need a close above the 200-DMA to shift
immediate focus to Thb32.39-58 and overall focus to Thb32.92.
     DOLLAR-IDR TECHS: Bulls Need Close Above Idr13965
*RES 4: Idr14080 - High May 28 now support 
*RES 3: Idr14037 - 21-DMA 
*RES 2: Idr13965 - Low May 30 now resistance 
*RES 1: Idr13895 - 55-DMA
*PRICE: Idr13867 @ 2300GMT
*SUP 1: Idr13800 - High Mar 1 now support 
*SUP 2: Idr13751 - 100-DMA 
*SUP 3: Idr13730 - Low Mar 28 
*SUP 4: Idr13688 - High Feb 22 now support
*COMMENTARY: The correction lower from 2018 highs continues with the close below
the 55-DMA adding weight to the case for a move back to Idr13688-751 where the
100-DMA is noted. Daily studies approaching O/S is less than ideal for bears. In
saying that, bulls now need a close above Idr13965 to gain breathing room and
above Idr14110 to return initial pressure to 2018 highs.
