BUND TECHS: (U18) Bears Need Close Below 21-DMA
*RES 4: 164.19 2018 High May 29
*RES 3: 163.03 High May 30
*RES 2: 163.00 Bollinger band top
*RES 1: 162.66 High June 28
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 162.30
*SUP 1: 162.01 Low June 27
*SUP 2: 161.75 Low June 26
*SUP 3: 161.26 Low June 21
*SUP 4: 161.19 21-DMA
*COMMENTARY: Support emerging on dips back towards the 21-DMA provided the
impetus for a rally last week that shifted immediate focus to 163.03 and overall
focus on 2018 highs & the weekly bear channel top (164.48). Bears need a close
below 161.75 to gain breathing room and below the 21-DMA to shift initial focus
back to 159.37-160.22 where the 55-DMA (159.78) is situated. Bulls look for a
close above 163.03 to add support to their case.
     BOBL TECHS: (U18) 131.980 & 132.300 Levels Key Today
*RES 4: 132.970 Monthly High May 29 
*RES 3: 132.660 High May 30 
*RES 2: 132.511 Bollinger band top 
*RES 1: 132.300 High June 28
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 132.210
*SUP 1: 132.010 Low June 26
*SUP 2: 131.980 Hourly support June 21
*SUP 3: 131.770 High June 18 now support
*SUP 4: 131.695 21-DMA
*COMMENTARY: Topside hesitation is less than ideal given daily studies looking
to correct from O/B and the Bollinger top lurking just above and likely to limit
follow through on a break higher. Bears look for a close below 131.980 to gain
breathing room and below the 21-DMA to hint at a move back to 130.780-131.190
with below 131.490 to confirm. Bulls need a close above 132.300 to add support
to their case.
     SCHATZ TECHS: (U18) Bears Need Close Below 112.055
*RES 4: 112.270 High May 30 
*RES 3: 112.155 Hourly resistance May 30 
*RES 2: 112.150 Bollinger band top 
*RES 1: 112.135 High June 21
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 112.100
*SUP 1: 112.075 Low June 25 
*SUP 2: 112.055 Hourly support June 21 
*SUP 3: 112.024 21-DMA 
*SUP 4: 111.975 Hourly support June 14
*COMMENTARY: Narrow sideways trading has defined this week so far although
topside hesitation is a concern given daily studies looking to correct from O/B
and the Bollinger top just above. Bulls need a close above 112.155 to confirm a
shift in focus back to 112.270-425 where 2018 highs are noted. Bears look for a
close below 112.055 to gain breathing room and below 111.940 to shift focus back
to 111.815-888 where 55 (111.888) & 100 (111.846) DMAs are noted.
     GILT TECHS: (U18) Bears Need Close Below 122.87
*RES 4: 124.67 High May 29 
*RES 3: 123.93 Hourly resistance May 29 
*RES 2: 123.68 Bollinger band top 
*RES 1: 123.64 High May 30
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 123.26
*SUP 1: 123.19 High June 19 now support 
*SUP 2: 122.87 Low June 27 
*SUP 3: 122.55 Low June 22 
*SUP 4: 122.28 Low June 21
*COMMENTARY: Pressure on the 123.19 resistance took its toll with a break higher
Wednesday that sees immediate focus now on 123.64. Bulls now look for a close
above this level to add support to the case for a test of 124.67. O/B daily
studies and the Bollinger top remain concerns for bulls. Bears need a close
below 122.87 to gain breathing room and below 122.28 to shift focus back to
121.12-73 where 55 & 100-DMAs are noted.
     SHORT-STERLING TECHS: (U18) Bulls Need Close Above 99.230
*RES 4: 99.300 High May 25-30
*RES 3: 99.274 Bollinger band top
*RES 2: 99.260 Lows May 25 & 30 now resistance
*RES 1: 99.223 21-DMA
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 99.205
*SUP 1: 99.185 Low June 27
*SUP 2: 99.181 55-DMA
*SUP 3: 99.170 200-DMA
*SUP 4: 99.140 Lows May 30 - Apr 3
*COMMENTARY: Pressure on 55 & 200-DMAs failed to produce a break lower with
bears looking for a close below the 200-DMA now to confirm focus on the 100-DMA.
Bears need a close below the 100-DMA to target 98.990-99.060 where 2018 lows are
situated. Layers of resistance are slowing the recovery with bulls needing a
close above 99.230 to confirm a break of the 21-DMA and hint at a move back to
99.300 with above 99.260 to confirm.
     EURIBOR TECHS: (Z18) Below 100.265 To Shift Focus Lower
*RES 4: 100.310 - 2018 High Repeatedly May 
*RES 3: 100.305 - Repeated daily lows Apr/May now resistance 
*RES 2: 100.304 - Bollinger band top 
*RES 1: 100.300 - Highs June 14 & 15
*PREVIOUS CLOSE: 100.290

*SUP 2: 100.275 - Lows June 21-22 & 25
*SUP 3: 100.265 - High June 11 now support
*SUP 4: 100.245 - Lows June 7 & 8
*COMMENTARY: The 100.300-305 resistance remains key. Bulls need a close above
this region to confirm a bullish bias and initially target 100.320. Daily
studies looking to correct from O/B levels is less than ideal for bulls. Bears
still need a close below the 21-DMA to ease bullish pressure and below the
200-DMA to shift immediate focus back to 100.245 and overall focus back to 2018
lows.
