layers $1.1808-1.1911 where key DMAs and the bull channel base are situated.
Layers of resistance accumulating and daily studies correcting from O/B adds
weight to the bearish case. Bulls now need a close above $1.2009 to return focus
to 2017 highs.

*COMMENTARY: Failure to trouble $1.3612 so far this week has left the pair
looking a little heavy and focus back on layers of support $1.3452-91 where the
21-DMA is noted. Bears now look for a close below the 21-DMA to shift focus to
$1.3282-1.3338 where 55 & 100-DMAs and the bull channel base are situated.
Correcting O/B studies adds weight to the bearish case. Bulls now need a close
above $1.3585 to gain breathing room and above 2017 highs to target $1.3828.
     DOLLAR-YEN TECHS: Focus Returns To Y110.83-111.98

Y112.86 leaving the pair looking heavy and reconfirming focus on the
Y110.83-111.98 support region where 100 & 200-DMAs are noted. Bears continue to
look for a close below Y110.83 to target 2017 lows. Bulls continue to look for a
close above Y113.44 to confirm a break of the channel top and shift overall
focus back to Y114.72.

*SUP 3: Y133.31 55-DMA 
*SUP 4: Y133.15 Daily Bull channel base
*COMMENTARY: The lack of topside follow through took its toll with a sell-off
that leaves the pair looking a little heavy. Daily studies correcting from O/B
add weight to the case for a deeper correction. Bears now need a close below the
100-DMA (Y132.77) to add weight to the case for a move targeting Y130.59-132.03.

Overall bears need a close below Gbp0.8690 to confirm a bearish bias and
initially target the 100-WMA (Gbp0.8547). Bulls still need a close above the
55-DMA to ease bearish pressure and above the 100-DMA to shift focus higher.

who are initially focused on $0.7906 with overall focus on 2017 highs. Topside
hesitation to start the new week was less than ideal but bears continue to look
for a close below $0.7802 to gain breathing room. Bears still need a close below
the 200-DMA to shift initial focus to $0.7623 and hint at a move back to
$0.7499-00 with below $0.7580 to confirm.

*COMMENTARY: Bulls take comfort in support ahead of the 21-DMA providing a
bounce to start the new year with the close above the weekly bear channel top
(2.529) adding support to the case for a move now initially targeting 2.629-692
where yearly and monthly highs are situated. Daily studies have room to move
before O/B becomes an issue. Bears now look for a close below 2.504 to gain
breathing room and hint at a correction back to the 21-DMA.

studies looking to correct from O/B. Bears continue to look for a close below
$1302.5 to shift focus back to $1272.8-1289.2 where key DMAs are noted. While
$1302.5 supports bulls maintain focus on tests of $1357.5-1374.9 where 2016 &
2017 highs are situated but need a close above $1325.9 to add support to their
