*COMMENTARY: The $1.1723 resistance confirmed significance having capped the
break of the 21-DMA ($1.1655) and the bear channel top ($1.1620) off Apr 19
highs. A close above $1.1723 is needed to initially target $1.1781-1.1912. Bears
now look for a close below $1.1589 to return pressure on $1.1506 and below this
level to shift immediate focus to $1.1311 although 100 ($1.1441) & 200 ($1.1393)
WMAs may slow the move.

breathing room last Friday with the recovery seeing a pop above the 21-DMA
($1.3241) lack follow through. A close above $1.3314 remains needed to shift
initial focus back to $1.3415-1.3528 where the 55-WMA ($1.3445) & 55-DMA
($1.3415) are noted. Bears dominate while $1.3314 caps and continue to look for

hopes, shifting immediate focus to Y113.22-44 where the 200-WMA (Y113.22) is
noted and overall focus to Y114.72 Nov highs. Bears now need a close below the

200-DMA (Y131.96) is noted. Bears still need a close below Y128.40 to gain
breathing room and below Y126.22 to confirm immediate focus on tests of 2018

& 21-DMAs and to shift focus back to Gbp0.8669-0.8715. The bounce from the

immediate focus to Gbp0.8967 2018 highs. The Bollinger top is noted at Gbp0.8871

$0.7443 to gain breathing room and above $0.7552 to confirm a break of the
55-DMA ($0.7504) and shift focus to $0.7619-0.7735 where 100 & 200-DMAs are

(94.568) and bull channel base (94.658) and to shift initial focus back to
93.193-630 where the 55-DMA is located.

*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2018 & 3+yr highs Tuesday remained capped ahead of daily and
weekly bull channel tops. The Bollinger top ($75.85) and very O/B daily studies
remain key concerns for bulls and limit follow through. The close below $73.50
buys bears breathing room. Below $72.18 remains needed to hint at a move back to
$69.44-70.02 with a close below $71.40 to add weight to their case.
