EURO-DOLLAR TECHS: $1.1723 Resistance Key This Week
*RES 4: $1.1820 High June 11
*RES 3: $1.1723 Low June 13 now resistance
*RES 2: $1.1691 21-DMA
*RES 1: $1.1660 Hourly resistance June 14
*PRICE: $1.1628 @ 0430GMT
*SUP 1: $1.1595 Hourly support June 18

*SUP 3: $1.1506 2018 Low May 29 
*SUP 4: $1.1470 Low July 18 2017
*COMMENTARY: An inside day to start the week with bears remaining focused on
tests of 2018 lows. Daily studies remain well placed for a fresh leg lower with
the Bollinger base ($1.1541) the key concern. Bears continue to look for a close
below $1.1311 to confirm breaks of 100 ($1.1429) & 200-WMAs, shifting immediate
focus to $1.1117 June 2017 lows. Bulls still need a close above $1.1723 to shift
focus back to $1.1854-94.
     CABLE TECHS: $1.3297-1.3350 Resistance Key Today
*RES 4: $1.3446 High June 14 
*RES 3: $1.3414 Hourly support June 14 now resistance 
*RES 2: $1.3350 Hourly resistance June 14

*SUP 3: $1.3072 100-WMA 
*SUP 4: $1.2995 High Sept 1 now support
*COMMENTARY: Topside follow through has been lacking the past two weeks with the
sharp sell-off Thursday returning immediate focus to 2018 lows. Bears look for a
close below $1.3203 to initially target $1.2995-1.3072 where the 100-WMA is
located. Daily studies are well placed for losses but the Bollinger base
($1.3220) may limit follow through. Bulls need a close above $1.3297 to gain
breathing room and above $1.3350 to return focus to $1.3446-3528.
     DOLLAR-YEN TECHS: Dipping Into Key Support Region
*RES 4: Y111.18 High May 22 
*RES 3: Y110.90 High June 15 
*RES 2: Y110.62 Hourly resistance June 8 
*RES 1: Y110.23 200-DMA
*PRICE: Y109.67 @ 0430GMT

*SUP 2: Y109.01 Hourly support June 1 
*SUP 3: Y108.70 Low June 1 
*SUP 4: Y108.14 100-DMA
*COMMENTARY: The failure to gain traction above the 200-DMA (Y110.23) sees the
pair dipping into the Y109.01-84 support region. Bears need a close below
Y109.84 to ease bullish pressure and below Y109.01 to pressure Y107.85-108.14
where the 100-DMA is found. Daily studies at O/B levels is less than ideal for
bulls. Bulls now need a close above Y110.90 to confirm traction above the
200-DMA and return immediate focus to Y111.39-98.
     EURO-YEN TECHS: Y127.10 Support Key This Week
*RES 4: Y129.65 Hourly support June 13 now resistance

*SUP 3: Y124.61 2018 Low May 29 
*SUP 4: Y123.63 Low June 21 2017
*COMMENTARY: Continued hesitation ahead of the 55-DMA (Y130.31) and
Y130.31-132.59 where key DMAs, WMAs and the daily bear channel top are situated
combined with O/B studies looking to correct provided the impetus for a sharp
sell-off that shifted overall focus back to 2018 lows. Bears now need a close
below Y127.10 to add weight to their case. Bulls now need a close above Y128.64
to gain breathing room and above 129.65 to pressure the 55-DMA once again.

*COMMENTARY: Support emerging on sell-offs is a concern for bears and has seen

located. Initial support is now noted at Gbp0.8754 with bears needing a close

lows. Layers of resistance have been left in the wake with bulls needing a close
above $0.7481 to gain breathing room and above $0.7627 to shift initial focus

left the index looking offered with bears now needing a close below 94.028 to
confirm a break of the 21-DMA and shift focus back to 92.841-93.193. Bulls now
need a close above 95.167 to initially target 96.512 weekly highs from July
2017. Daily studies are at largely neutral levels and giving few clues.
