*SUP 4: $1.1862 Low Sept 20
*COMMENTARY: The daily bull channel base continues to confirm significance with
support again emerging on dips following the aggressive sell-off Wednesday.
Bears still need a close below $1.1822 to shift initial focus to the 55-DMA
($1.1783) and overall focus to $1.1583-1.1658. Bulls now look for a close above
$1.1984 to shift focus back to $1.2027-1.2092 where the Bollinger top ($1.2037)
& 2017 highs are situated.
     CABLE TECHS: Bears Still Need Close Below $1.3450
*RES 4: $1.4006 Monthly Low Apr 6 2016 now resistance 
*RES 3: $1.3703 Bollinger band top 
*RES 2: $1.3657 2017 High Sept 20

*SUP 4: $1.3471 Low Sept 21
*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2017 and 15mth highs lacked follow through Wednesday but
bulls take comfort in support emerging ahead of the $1.3450 level. The $1.3450
support remains key. 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. Bears now need a close below $1.3558 to gain breathing room. While
$1.3558 supports bulls remain focused on 2017 highs.
     DOLLAR-YEN TECHS: Looking A Little Heavy
*RES 4: Y113.70 Low July 11 now resistance 
*RES 3: Y112.85 Low July 13 now resistance

*SUP 2: Y111.11 100-DMA 
*SUP 3: Y110.99 Hourly support Sept 18 a 
*SUP 4: Y110.61 55-DMA
*COMMENTARY: Bulls have so far failed to gain traction above the 200-DMA
(Y112.15) leaving the pair looking a little heavy and pressuring Y111.54. Bears
need a close below Y111.54 to confirm a shift in focus to 55 & 100-DMAs. Bulls
now need a close above Y112.39 to retain focus on Y112.85 and overall focus on
tests of July monthly highs. O/B studies and the Bollinger top (Y112.57) remain
key concerns for bulls.
     EURO-YEN TECHS: Y133.19 Support Key Today
*RES 4: Y135.84 Low Oct 21 2015 now resistance

*SUP 3: Y132.58 Hourly support Sept 18 
*SUP 4: Y132.21 Hourly resistance Sept 15 now support
*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2017 and nearly 2 year highs continue although the rejection
ahead of Y134.59 is less than ideal given the proximity of the Bollinger top
(Y134.28) and O/B daily studies looking to correct. Bears continue to look for a
close below Y133.19 to gain breathing room and below Y132.21 to return focus to
the 21-DMA/channel base (Y131.12-51). Bulls look for a close above Y134.59 to
add support to the case for a test of the bull channel top (Y139.02).

*SUP 3: Gbp0.8712 200-DMA 
*SUP 4: Gbp0.8710 Bollinger band base
*COMMENTARY: Daily studies are looking to correct from very O/S levels and
increase the risk of a correction. Bulls still need a close above Gbp0.8858 to
ease immediate bearish pressure with a close above Gbp0.8920 needed to shift
initial focus back to the 55-DMA (Gbp0.9015). Bears currently focus on
Gbp0.8704-12 where the 55-WMA and 200-DMA are situated. Below the 55-WMA shifts
focus to Gbp0.8523.

hopes, shifting immediate focus to $0.7863 and overall focus to $0.7781-0.7807.
Layers of resistance continue to accumulate and weigh with bulls now needing a
close above $0.8037 to shift focus back to 2017 highs.
