*SUP 4: Sgd1.3399 - Low Sept 20
*COMMENTARY: Correcting O/S daily studies impacted last week with support
emerging on dips a concern for bears. Bulls continue to look for a close above
the 200-WMA to ease bearish pressure and above the 100-DMA to shift initial
focus to Sgd1.3659. Initial support remains at Sgd1.3459 but bears still need a

*COMMENTARY: The lack of follow through on 2017/2+ year lows is a concern when
combined with correcting O/S daily studies & the Bollinger band base (Krw1070.8)
limiting follow through. 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 need a close
below Krw1090.9 to gain breathing room and below Krw1080.3 to retain focus on
2015 lows and then the Krw1045.6 Oct monthly low from 2014.

remains on the 200-WMA (Myr3.9190). Initial resistance is noted at Myr4.0930
with bulls needing a close above to ease bearish pressure and hint at a

*COMMENTARY: Repeated fresh 2017 lows added weight to the bearish case with

close above the 21-DMA to ease immediate bearish pressure and hint at a
correction back to Thb32.92-33.14 where 55 & 100-DMAs and MT bear channel top
(Thb32.95) are located.

but bears need a close below Idr13490 to confirm a break and below Idr13455 to
confirm focus on Idr13371-421 where 100 & 200-DMAs are situated. Narrowing
