to shift immediate focus to $1.1311 although 100 ($1.1434) & 200 ($1.1399) WMAs
may support along the way. Bulls now need a close above $1.1723 to confirm
breaks of the 21-DMA and bear channel top and initially target $1.1854-1.1901.

Bears continue to look for a close below $1.2995 to confirm traction below the
100-WMA and initially target $1.2770 Aug lows. The Bollinger base ($1.3073)
remains the key concern for bears. Bulls now need a close above $1.3190 to gain
breathing room and above $1.3314 to shift initial focus back to $1.3446-1.3528.

*SUP 4: Y108.70 Low June 1
*COMMENTARY: The pair remains capped ahead of Y110.90 following the bounces from
around the 55-DMA. Bulls need a close above Y110.90 to confirm traction above
the 200-DMA (Y110.18) and shift initial focus to Y111.39-98. Bears still need a
close below Y109.01 to confirm a break of the 55-DMA (Y109.57) and Bull channel
base, initially pressuring Y107.85-108.19 where the 100-DMA is found with below
Y107.85 to shift focus back to 2018 lows.
     EURO-YEN TECHS: Bulls Need Close Above Y128.81 Today
*RES 4: Y130.09 Daily Bear channel top off 2018 highs

*SUP 4: Y126.63 Low June 19
*COMMENTARY: Bears failed to capitalise on pressure returning to Y126.98 with
bulls taking comfort in the rally in Asia Friday. Bulls now look for a close
above Y128.81 to confirm an easing of bearish pressure and shift initial focus
back to Y129.65-130.490 where 55 & 100-DMAs and the bear channel top off 2018
highs are found. Bears now need a close below Y128.68 to ease renewed bullish
pressure and below Y126.22 to confirm immediate focus on tests of 2018 lows.

*RES 3: Gbp0.8981 High Nov 28 
*RES 2: Gbp0.8967 2018 High Mar 7

on Gbp0.9013-0.9107. Layers of support are accumulating with bears now need a

*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2018 & 18mth lows Wed saw bears shift focus to $0.7152 Dec
2016 monthly lows although the weekly bear channel base ($0.7226) may slow the
move. O/S daily studies and the Bollinger base ($0.7270) are key concerns for
bears. Bulls need a close above $0.7443 to gain breathing room and above $0.7481
to shift initial focus back to $0.7537-0.7627 where the 55 ($0.7537) DMA is
located. Above the 55-DMA then initially targets $0.7627-0.7735.

around the 100-WMA continuing. Bulls continue to look for a close above the
100-WMA (95.568) to target 96.617. The 94.028 support remains key. Bears need a
close below this level to confirm traction below the 21-DMA and to shift focus
back to 92.199-93.190 where 55 & 200-DMAs are located.

*SUP 4: $69.44 - High June 25 now support
*COMMENTARY: Support around the 55-DMA ($68.21) provided the base for gains that
have resulted in fresh 2018 & 3+yr highs. Bulls now focus their attention on the
$75.87-79.85 region where the LT weekly bull channel top ($75.87) is situated.
O/B studies and the Bollinger top ($72.73) remain concerns for bulls. In saying
that, bears now need a close below $72.18 to gain breathing room and below

targeting tests of the 200-WMA and LT rising TL of 2015 lows around $1237.9. The
Bollinger base ($1243.2) and O/S daily studies looking to correct remain key
concern for bears. Bulls look for a close above $1262.7 to gain breathing room
and above $1284.1 to return pressure to $1292.2-1310.5.
