*SUP 2: $1.1868 Hourly support Sept 14 
*SUP 3: $1.1838 Low Sept 14 
*SUP 4: $1.1823 Low Sept 1
*COMMENTARY: The pair dipped back towards the daily bull channel base ($1.1832)
last week with bulls taking comfort in the bounce and close above $1.1926. Bulls
need a close above $1.2045 to reconfirm initial focus on retests of 2017 highs
with overall focus on the channel top ($1.2286). Layers of support remain and
studies are well placed for gains. Bears need a close below $1.1901 to ease
bullish pressure.
     CABLE TECHS: Bears Need Close Below $1.3450
*RES 4: $1.4006 Monthly Low Apr 6 2016 now resistance

*SUP 3: $1.3381 Low Sept 15 
*SUP 4: $1.3344 Hourly support Sept 14
*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2017 and 15mth highs continued Monday, albeit marginally with
bullish focus now on $1.4006 Apr 2016 monthly highs. In saying that, the
correction lower Monday is less than ideal for bulls. Bears still need a close
below $1.3450 to confirm an easing of bullish pressure and below $1.3306 to
shift focus back to $1.3148 lows from last week. O/B studies and the Bollinger
top ($1.3568) remain concerns for bulls.

*SUP 4: Y110.29 Hourly resistance Sept 15 now support
*COMMENTARY: The NY close above the Y111.33 level adds support to the bullish
case and sees focus now on the 200-DMA. Bulls now look for a close above the
200-DMA to shift initial focus to July highs (Y114.49) and overall focus to 2017
highs (Y118.61). Initial support is noted at Y111.33 but bears look for a close
below Y110.99 to ease bullish pressure and below Y110.62 to shift initial focus
back to Y109.55. The Bollinger top (Y111.55) is the key concern for bulls.

*COMMENTARY: The 21 (Y130.80) & 55 (Y130.07) DMAs and channel base supported
during Sept and support emerging on dips Friday provided the catalyst for a
rally to fresh 2017 and nearly 2yr highs with immediate focus on Y134.59.
Overall bullish focus remains on the channel top (Y138.59). The Bollinger top
(Y133.27) is the key concern for bulls. Bears need a close below Y132.58 to ease
bullish pressure and below Y131.75 to return focus to the 21-DMA/channel base.

Gbp0.8867 to ease immediate bearish pressure and above Gbp0.8920 to shift focus
back to the 55-DMA (Gbp0.9015). Support layers are building with bears now
needing a close below Gbp0.8844 to ease pressure on initial resistance and

*COMMENTARY: The reversal lower from the day's highs Monday sees the pair
flirting with the 21-DMA ($0.7970) & bull channel base ($0.7967) with focus on
$0.7920. Bears need a close below this level to pressure the 55-DMA and below
$0.7863 to shift initial focus back to $0.7781-0.7807. Layers of resistance are
building once again with bulls now needing a close above $0.8000 to gain

case for a retest of 2017 lows. Layers of resistance remain with bulls needing a
close above 92.661 to confirm a break of the 21-DMA and above 92.936 to shift

shift immediate focus to key DMAs clustered $48.06-64. The $51.45 resistance
