the 55-DMA to shift initial focus to 111.815-870 where the 100-DMA is located.
Bulls now need a close above 112.085 to gain breathing room and above 112.155 to

100-DMAs are situated. Bulls still need a close above 123.64 to add support to

     EURIBOR TECHS: 100.300-305 Resistance Remains Key
*RES 4: 100.310 - 2018 High Repeatedly May

120-03 to ease bullish pressure and below the 100-DMA (119-22+) to shift initial
focus back to 119-13+ with the 55-DMA at 119-14+. Bulls need a close above
