EURO-DOLLAR TECHS: $1.1689-1.1725 Resistance Key
*RES 4: $1.1785 Hourly resistance Oct 26 
*RES 3: $1.1725 Low Oct 23 now resistance 
*RES 2: $1.1689 Hourly support Oct 26 now resistance 
*RES 1: $1.1644 Hourly resistance Oct 27

*SUP 2: $1.1530 Daily bear channel base 
*SUP 3: $1.1478 Low July 20 
*SUP 4: $1.1369 High July 5 now support
*COMMENTARY: Following the topside failure around the 55-DMA ($1.1831) last week
the pair headed lower with bears focused on $1.1478-1.1575 where the bear
channel base is noted. The weekly close below the 200-WMA ($1.1671) adds weight
to the bearish case. The Bollinger base ($1.1623) is the key concern and
currently limits follow through. Bulls need a close above $1.1689 to ease
bearish pressure and above $1.1725 to target the 55-DMA.
     CABLE TECHS: Bears Need Close Below $1.2995
*RES 4: $1.3279 High Oct 26

*SUP 4: $1.2995 High Sept 1 now support
*COMMENTARY: Time spent above the 21-DMA ($1.3193) was short with the break of
the 21-DMA leaving the pair looking heavy and focus back to layers of support
$1.2995-1.3065 where the 100-DMA is located. Bulls still need a close above
$1.3183 to ease bearish pressure and above $1.3240 to shift focus back to
$1.3279-1.3343. Bears look for a close below $1.2995 to shift overall focus to
the 200-DMA ($1.2842).
     DOLLAR-YEN TECHS: Bears Need Close Below Y113.25
*RES 4: Y115.62 High Jan 19 
*RES 3: Y115.24 Falling LT weekly TL

*SUP 2: Y113.25 Low Oct 24 
*SUP 3: Y113.06 Hourly support Oct 20a 
*SUP 4: Y112.74 Hourly resistance Oct 19 now support
*COMMENTARY: Bulls repeatedly failed to take out the key Y114.49 resistance last
week with the pair looking a little heavy as a result. Bulls still need a close
above Y114.49 to shift initial focus to Y115.34-62 where July highs are noted.
The Bollinger top (Y114.13) is the key concern for bulls. Bears now look for a
close below Y113.25 to confirm an easing of bullish pressure and shift focus
back to layers of support Y111.33-112.30 where key DMAs are clustered.
     EURO-YEN TECHS: Bears Need Close Below 55-DMA

*SUP 2: Y131.65 Low Oct 16 
*SUP 3: Y131.39 Bollinger band base 
*SUP 4: Y130.59 Low Sept 15
*COMMENTARY: Continued hesitation ahead of Y134.59 resulted in a sell-off with
the pair flirting with Friday's close below the bull channel base (Y132.78)
shifting pressure to the 55-DMA. Bears need a close below the 55-DMA to target a
deeper correction initially focused on Y129.36-130.59 where the 100-DMA
(Y130.16) is found. Bulls need a close above Y133.50 to ease bearish pressure
and above Y133.99 to return focus to Y134.59.

of the 21-DMA. Bears remain focused on Gbp0.8722-53 where Sept lows, the 200-DMA
and 55-WMA (Gbp0.8722) are situated. The weekly bull channel base comes in
around Gbp0.8030 this week with bears needing a close below Gbp0.8800 to confirm
a break and add weight to the bearish case. Bulls need a close above the 21-DMA
to ease bearish pressure.

focus shift to $0.7513-76 where the daily bear channel base is noted. The 55-WMA
comes in at $0.7632 and may slow the move. Overall bears look for a close below
$0.7312 to confirm focus on tests of 2017 lows. Bulls still need a close above
$0.7720 to ease bearish pressure and above $0.7775 to pressure the
$0.7831-0.7909 region where key DMAs and channel top are situated.
     US DOLLAR-INDEX TECHS: Bears Need Close Below 94.717

aggressive rally saw closes above the 21-WMA (93.939) and 100-DMA that confirmed
bullish focus on 95.167-464 where the daily bull channel top is noted. Bears now
need a close below 94.717 to ease bullish pressure and below the 100-DMA to
shift focus back to 92.724-93.597. The Bollinger top (94.730) and O/B studies
are now concerns for bulls.

*COMMENTARY: The lack of topside follow-through in the latter half of last week
is less than ideal for bulls with the Bollinger top (2.445) currently the key
concern. The 2.394 support remains key. Bears need a close below 2.394 to ease
bullish pressure and below the 21-DMA to initially pressure the 200-DMA (2.314)
and hint at a correction back to 2.251-278. Layers of resistance are starting
weigh with bulls needing a close above 2.445 to shift pressure back to 2.477.

bullish bias with focus now on $55.02-20 where the daily bull channel top and
Apr highs are noted. Layers of support are following the contract higher with
bears now needing a close below $53.63 to ease immediate bullish pressure and
below $52.86 to shift focus back to the 21-DMA ($51.67).
