BUND TECHS: (U17) 21-DMA Support Now Key
*RES 4: 165.93 Monthly High Apr 18
*RES 3: 165.69 High Aug 29
*RES 2: 165.31 High Aug 30
*RES 1: 164.92 Hourly resistance Sept 1
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 164.77
*SUP 1: 164.52 Low Sept 1
*SUP 2: 164.36 Low Aug 25
*SUP 3: 164.33 21-DMA
*SUP 4: 164.00 Low Aug 18
*COMMENTARY: The lack of topside follow through Tuesday resulted in a sell-off
that broke the daily bull channel base and sees immediate pressure now on
164.33-52 where the 21-DMA is noted. Bears now look for a close below the 21-DMA
to add weight to the case for a test of 163.16-44 where 55 & 100-DMAs are
located. Bulls now need a close above 154.85 to gain breathing room and above
165.31 to return focus to 165.69-93.
BOBL TECHS: (U17) Channel Base Supporting
*RES 4: 133.60 Daily Bull channel top 
*RES 3: 133.36 High Aug 29 
*RES 2: 133.35 Bollinger band top 
*RES 1: 133.24 High Aug 30
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 133.08
*SUP 1: 133.04 Daily Bull channel base
*SUP 2: 132.99 Low Sept 1
*SUP 3: 132.94 Low Aug 28
*SUP 4: 132.84 Low Aug 25
*COMMENTARY: The sell-off Friday again leaves the contract looking a little
heavy with the 132.94-133.04 support key. Daily studies looking to correct from
O/B increase the risk of a correction with bears needing a close below 132.94 to
confirm a break of the channel base and shift initial focus back to 132.65-84
where the 21-DMA is noted. Bulls still need a close above 132.24 to end
correction talk and retain focus on the channel top.
SCHATZ TECHS: (U17) Bears Need Close Below 112.240
*RES 4: 112.360 Daily Bull channel top 
*RES 3: 112.300 High Apr 24 now support 
*RES 2: 112.297 Bollinger band top 
*RES 1: 112.290 Monthly High May 30, High Aug 29
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 112.270
*SUP 1: 112.240 Low Aug 30, Daily Bull channel base 
*SUP 2: 112.215 Low Aug 28 
*SUP 3: 112.190 Low Aug 25 
*SUP 4: 112.187 21-DMA
*COMMENTARY: Since sideways trading 112.130-190 ended the contract has attracted
support on dips. Bears continue to look for a close below 112.240 to confirm an
easing of bullish pressure and below 112.215 to shift immediate pressure to
112.175-190 where the 21-DMA is located. Overall below 112.130 is needed to
target 112.054-073. While 112.240 supports immediate focus remains on
112.290-360. O/B studies and the Bollinger top remain concerns for bulls.

*SUP 2: 126.80 Low Aug 24 
*SUP 3: 126.71 21-DMA 
*SUP 4: 126.49 Low Aug 23
*COMMENTARY: Lower daily highs and lows the latter part of last week are
weighing with a dip below the bull channel base Friday and focus now on the
21-DMA. Bears need a close below the 21-DMA to confirm an easing of bullish
pressure and to shift focus to 125.94-126.49 where 55 & 100-DMAs are noted.
Bulls look for a close above 127.54 to return focus to 127.83-128.05 where the
bull channel top it noted.

highs reconfirming the bullish bias and seeing bulls focused on 99.680-713 where
the bull channel top is noted. Layers of support remain with bears needing a
close below 99.630 to ease bullish pressure and below 99.610 to pressure 55
(99.586) & 100 (99.600) DMAs. The Bollinger top remains the key concern for
bulls.

The Bollinger top is the key concern and currently limits follow through. Layers
of support remain with bears needing a close below 100.300 to ease bullish
pressure and below 100.285 to signal a correction that initially targets the
100-DMA (100.276). While 100.300 supports bull continue to target 100.330-370.

follow through and daily studies correcting from O/B. Layers of support remain
with bears needing a close below the daily bull channel base to hint at a move
back to 125-290/126-070 where 55 & 100-DMAs are noted. Bulls now need a close
above 127-060 to gain breathing room.
