*SUP 3: $1.1661 Low Aug 17 
*SUP 4: $1.1611 Low July 26
*COMMENTARY: Bulls failed to trouble $1.1862 Friday with the pair looking a
little heavy. Bulls continue to look for a close above $1.1862 to hint at a move
back to $1.2033-92 with above the 21-DMA ($1.1900) to confirm. While $1.1862
caps bears retain the upper hand and remain focused on $1.1583-1.1661 with a
close below $1.1709 to add weight. The Bollinger base ($1.1741) is the key
concern for bears and recently limited follow through.
     CABLE TECHS: Supported Ahead Of 21-DMA For Now
*RES 4: $1.3571 High Sept 25 
*RES 3: $1.3514 High Sept 26 
*RES 2: $1.3463 High Sept 27

*SUP 2: $1.3334 21-DMA 
*SUP 3: $1.3328 High Sept 13 now support 
*SUP 4: $1.3159 Hourly resistance Sept 8 now support
*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2017 and 15mth highs lacked follow through Wednesday with the
correction seeing bearish focus now on the $1.3328-1.3343 support region. Bears
need a close below $1.3328 to confirm a break of the 21-DMA, end bullish hopes
and shift focus back to $1.3158. Bulls still need a close above $1.3463 to gain
breathing room and above $1.3514 to shift focus back to $1.3595-1.3657.
     DOLLAR-YEN TECHS: 55 & 200-DMAs Key This Week
*RES 4: Y114.49 Monthly High July 11 
*RES 3: Y113.94 Bollinger band top

*SUP 2: Y112.00 200-DMA 
*SUP 3: Y111.92 Hourly support Sept 26 
*SUP 4: Y111.48 Low Sept 25
*COMMENTARY: Topside follow through above Y112.85 has been a little lacking
which is a concern with daily studies at O/B levels, momentum divergence and the
Bollinger top capping. In saying that, bulls are focused on tests of July highs
with above Y113.70 to add support to their case. Bears continue to look for a
close below the 200-DMA to ease bullish pressure and below Y111.48 to confirm a
shift in focus to key DMAs Y110.52-111.02.

*SUP 2: Y132.07 Low Sept 27 
*SUP 3: Y132.00 21-DMA 
*SUP 4: Y131.97 Daily Bull channel base
*COMMENTARY: Despite pressure returning to the daily bull channel base and
21-DMA last week, bears have so far failed to manage the close below Y131.72
needed to confirm breaks with below the 55-DMA needed to shift immediate focus
to Y127.42-128.46 where Aug lows and the 100-DMA are noted. Layers of resistance
remain with bulls needing a close above Y133.49 to shift focus back to
Y134.25-59.

*SUP 4: Gbp0.8746 Low Sept 27
*COMMENTARY: Bulls took comfort in the bounce to end the week with layers of
resistance Gbp0.8841-0.8926 remaining key. Bulls now look for a close above
Gbp0.8841 to add to bullish confidence and above the 21-DMA (Gbp0.8926) to shift
initial focus back to the 55-DMA (Gbp0.9012). Bears continue to look for a close
below the 55-WMA (Gbp0.8716) to shift focus to Gbp0.8523.

*SUP 3: $0.7767 - 100-DMA

*COMMENTARY: Consolidation below the 55-DMA saw the pair pressuring the
$0.7781-98 support region with the 100-DMA just below. O/S daily studies and the
Bollinger base ($0.7818) remain key concerns for bears. Bears look for a close
below $0.7743 to confirm breaks of key MAs and to shift focus to the 200-DMA
($0.7651). Bulls now look for a close above $0.7861 to gain breathing room and
above the 21-DMA ($0.7959) to shift focus back to $0.8036-0.8125.

*SUP 3: 92.898 - Hourly support Sept 26
*SUP 4: 92.724 - High Sept 25 now support
*COMMENTARY: Bulls took comfort in the close above the 55-DMA Wednesday but
hesitation ahead of the 93.762 resistance with daily studies at O/B levels is
less than ideal. Layers of support are accumulating with bears needing a close
below 92.898 to ease bullish pressure and below 97.724 to shift focus back to
91.526-781. Bulls look for a close above 93.762 to add support to the case for a
test of the 94.145-476 region where Aug highs are situated.

focus on 2.398-2.437 with above 2.437 needed to return focus to 2017 highs. The
Bollinger top (2.381) is the key concern for bulls with potential to limit
follow through. Layers of support are building but the 2.284 support is key with
bears needing a close below to shift focus back to 2.208-2.214.
