EURO-DOLLAR TECHS: $1.1823 & $1.1984 Levels Remain Key
*RES 4: $1.2070 High Aug 29 
*RES 3: $1.2009 Hourly support Aug 30a now resistance 
*RES 2: $1.1984 High Aug 30 
*RES 1: $1.1950 High Sept 6
*PRICE: $1.1927 @ 0430GMT
*SUP 1: $1.1903 Hourly support Sept 6 
*SUP 2: $1.1868 Low Sept 5 
*SUP 3: $1.1842 21-DMA 
*SUP 4: $1.1823 Low Sept 1
*COMMENTARY: Having lacked follow through on fresh 2017 and 2+ year highs last
week the pair saw pressure return to the 21-DMA with the rejection ahead of
$1.1984 Friday a concern for bulls. In saying that, bears still need a close
below $1.1823 to confirm an easing of bullish pressure and shift focus to
$1.1648-1.1743 where the channel base is noted. Bulls look for a close above
$1.1984 to reconfirm focus on the bull channel top ($1.2197).
     CABLE TECHS: Below $1.3019 To Ease Bullish Pressure
*RES 4: $1.3187 Low Aug 2 now resistance 
*RES 3: $1.3164 High Aug 4

*SUP 2: $1.3000 Hourly support Sept 5 
*SUP 3: $1.2979 Hourly support Sept 5a 
*SUP 4: $1.2965 55-DMA
*COMMENTARY: Cable managed a dip below the 21 ($1.2921) & 100 ($1.2920) DMAs
Tuesday before rallying sharply for a bullish close that shifted bullish focus
to the $1.3164 Aug 4 high. Daily studies approaching O/B and the Bollinger top
are key concerns for bulls. Layers of support are building with bears now
needing a close below $1.3019 to ease bullish pressure and below the 100-DMA to
shift focus back to $1.2757-70.
     DOLLAR-YEN TECHS: Y109.93 Resistance Key Today
*RES 4: Y110.67 High Aug 31 
*RES 3: Y110.48 High Sept 1

*PRICE: Y109.07 @ 0430GMT
*SUP 1: Y108.71 Hourly support Sept 6 
*SUP 2: Y108.46 Low Sept 6 
*SUP 3: Y108.27 Low Aug 29 
*SUP 4: Y108.10 2017 Low Apr 17
*COMMENTARY: Despite looking a little heavy yesterday support has again emerged
on a dip back towards the key Y107.47-108.10 supports. Bears continue to look
for a close below Y107.47 to shift immediate focus to Y106.95 and overall focus
to Y99.08-101.15. The Y109.93 resistance remains key. Bulls continue to look for
a close above Y109.93 to ease bearish pressure and shift focus back to
Y110.67-111.33 where 55 (Y111.00) & 100 (Y111.18) DMAs are located.
     EURO-YEN TECHS: Bears Need Close Below 55-DMA

*RES 1: Y130.39 High Sept 6
*PRICE: Y130.05 @ 0430GMT
*SUP 1: Y129.89 Hourly support Sept 7 
*SUP 2: Y129.42 55-DMA 
*SUP 3: Y128.31 Low Aug 22 
*SUP 4: Y127.81 Bollinger band base
*COMMENTARY: Despite pressuring the 55-DMA and daily bull channel base (Y129.55)
bears have failed to manage the close below needed to confirm a break of the
daily bull channel base, ending bullish hopes and shifting initial focus back to
Y127.43 June 30 lows. Layers of resistance remain with the Y130.36-70 region key
today. Bulls continue to look for a close above Y130.70 to shift focus back to
131.35-70.

*RES 4: Gbp0.9226 High Sept 4

*SUP 2: Gbp0.9091 Low Aug 18 
*SUP 3: Gbp0.9051 Low Aug 11 & 15 
*SUP 4: Gbp0.9026 Daily Bull channel base
*COMMENTARY: Pressure on the 21-DMA took its toll with closes below that add
weight to the case for a move that now targets Gbp0.8992-0.9051 where the 55-DMA
and daily bull channel base are situated. Below the 55-DMA then targets
Gbp0.8888-0.8920. Layers of resistance have accumulated with bulls now needing a
close above Gbp0.9174 to signal a false break of the 21-DMA and shift initial
focus back to Gbp0.9226-48.

*SUP 3: $0.7920 - Hourly support Aug 31 
*SUP 4: $0.7863 - Low Aug 24
*COMMENTARY: Hesitation ahead of the $0.8028 level is a concern for bulls with
the Bollinger band top ($0.8016) capping/limiting follow through. Bulls continue
to look for a close above $0.8065 to shift initial focus to tests of
$0.8163-0.8295 where 2015 highs are situated. Bears now look for a close below
$0.7961 to ease pressure on resistance layers and below $0.7920 to see pressure
back on the $0.7863 support.

*SUP 3: 91.621 - 2017 Low Aug 29
*SUP 4: 91.514 - Low Jan 15 2015
*COMMENTARY: The rejection above the 21-DMA (92.969) last Thursday has left the
index looking heavy with bears retaining focus on 91.514-621. A close below
91.514 is still needed to target 89.776-90.325. Layers of resistance are
accumulating and weighing with bulls needing a close above 92.936 to return
pressure to 93.347. The Bollinger base (91.944) remains the key concern for
bears and continues to support/limit follow through.
     US 10-YR YIELD TECHS: 100-WMA Supporting For Now

*SUP 3: 1.991 - Low Nov 10 
*SUP 4: 1.879 - High Nov 1 now support
*COMMENTARY: The topside failure ahead of 2.180 has resulted in a sell-off and
fresh 2017 & 10mth lows that saw the 100-WMA pressured. Bears look for a close
below the 100-WMA to add weight to the case for a test of 1.879-1.991. The
Bollinger base (2.078) and modestly O/S studies are concerns for bears. In
saying that, bulls now need a close above 2.115 to gain breathing room and above
2.180 to shift initial focus back to 2.206-2.229.
