*RES 2: $1.1820 High June 11
*RES 1: $1.1774 55-DMA
*PRICE: $1.1762 @ 0430GMT
*SUP 1: $1.1723 Alternating daily support/resistance 
*SUP 2: $1.1670 Hourly support July 5 
*SUP 3: $1.1627 Low July 4 
*SUP 4: $1.1589 Low July 2
*COMMENTARY: Pressure on the $1.1723 resistance took its toll last week with a
break and close above Friday only to pause ahead of the 55-DMA. The
$1.1889-1.1924 region where the 55-WMA ($1.1924) is key this week. Bulls now
need a close above the 55-WMA to shift initial focus to $1.1984-1.2053 where 100
($1.2019) & 200 ($1.1984) DMAs are noted. Bears now need a close below $1.1670
to ease renewed bullish pressure and below $1.1589 to pressure 2018 lows.
     CABLE TECHS: Bulls Need Close Above $1.3314
*RES 4: $1.3457 55-WMA 
*RES 3: $1.3446 High June 14 
*RES 2: $1.3404 55-DMA 
*RES 1: $1.3325 Hourly resistance July 6
*PRICE: $1.3296 @ 0430GMT

*SUP 3: $1.3201 Lows July 5 & 6 
*SUP 4: $1.3048 2018 Low June 28
*COMMENTARY: The rally from a dip below the 100-WMA ($1.3078) bought bulls
breathing room in past weeks but bulls continue to look for a close above
$1.3314 (June 22 high) to confirm focus on $1.3404-1.3528 where the 55-WMA
($1.3457) & 55-DMA ($1.3404) are noted. Bears now need a close below $1.3254 to
gain breathing room and below $1.3201 to return focus to 2018 $1.2995-1.3048
where 2018 lows are noted.
     DOLLAR-YEN TECHS: 55-DMA Support Remains Key
*RES 4: Y111.49 High Jan 18 
*RES 3: Y111.39 Monthly High May 21 
*RES 2: Y111.18 High May 22 
*RES 1: Y110.78 High June 6
*PRICE: Y110.46 @ 0430GMT
*SUP 1: Y110.13 200-DMA 
*SUP 2: Y109.95 Low June 28 
*SUP 3: Y109.91 55-DMA 
*SUP 4: Y109.01 Hourly support June 1
*COMMENTARY: Topside hesitation is a concern with Y111.39-112.04 where May highs
are noted remaining key. Bulls look for a close above Y112.04 to end bearish
hopes, shifting immediate focus to Y113.23-44 where the 200-WMA (Y113.23) is
noted and overall focus to Y114.72 Nov highs. Bears now need a close below the
200-DMA to gain breathing room and below the 55-DMA to confirm a break of the
bull channel base (Y110.27) off 2018 lows return pressure to Y109.01. A close
below Y109.01 initially targets Y107.85-108.24.
     EURO-YEN TECHS: Bulls Need Close Above Y130.34
*RES 4: Y131.37 High May 14
*RES 3: Y130.34 Highs June 13 & 14
*RES 2: Y130.28 100-DMA
*RES 1: Y129.96 High July 6

*SUP 1: Y129.09 Hourly support July 5 
*SUP 2: Y128.40 Low July 2 
*SUP 3: Y127.95 Hourly resistance June 29 now support 
*SUP 4: Y126.98 Low June 21
*COMMENTARY: Last week saw a pop above the daily bear channel top (Y129.67) but
hesitation ahead of the 100-DMA is a concern. Bulls now need a close above
Y130.34 to confirm breaks of 55 (Y129.41) & 100-DMAs and the bear channel top to
shift immediate focus to Y131.37-132.59 where the 200-DMA (Y131.95) is noted.
Bears now need a close below Y129.09 to gain breathing room and below Y128.40 to
shift immediate focus back to Y126.22.

*RES 2: Gbp0.8890 High June 29 
*RES 1: Gbp0.8868 High July 2
*PRICE: Gbp0.8846 @ 0430GMT
*SUP 1: Gbp0.8805 21-DMA 
*SUP 2: Gbp0.8779 Low June 25 
*SUP 3: Gbp0.8748 Low June 28 
*SUP 4: Gbp0.8715 Low June 15
*COMMENTARY: The 21-DMA is currently supporting with bears continuing to look
for a close below Gbp0.8779 to confirm breaks of 55 (Gbp0.8805), 100 (Gbp0.8784)
& 21-DMAs and to shift focus back to Gbp0.8669-0.8715. The bounces from the
21-DMA retains focus on the Gbp0.8868-0.8904 region with a close above shifting
immediate focus to Gbp0.8967 2018 highs. The Bollinger top is noted at Gbp0.8875
and has limited follow through last week.

with the pair trading at the week's high Friday. Bulls now need a close above
$0.7481 to hint at a move back to $0.7615-0.7735 where 100 ($0.7615) & 200
($0.7693) are located with above $0.7552 confirming. Daily studies are well
placed for a fresh leg higher before O/B is an issue. Bears now need a close
below $0.7413 today to ease pressure on the $0.7481 resistance.

hesitation around the 100-WMA continuing. Bulls continue to look for a close
above the 100-WMA (95.522) to target 96.617. The break of 94.028 sees immediate
pressure on the 55-DMA and bears now focused on a break of 92.837 needed to
pressure 100 (91.990) & 200 DMAs. Bulls now need a close above 94.728 to gain
breathing room and return pressure to 95.140-531.

for bears and limit follow through. Bulls continue now look for a close above
2.884 to gain breathing room and above 2.950 to confirm breaks of 21, 55 &
100-DMAs and pressure the key 3.014-050 resistance region.
     NYMEX WTI TECHS: (Q18) Below $72.14 To Shift Focus Lower

*PRICE: $74.13 @ 0430GMT
*SUP 1: $73.31 - Hourly support July 6 
*SUP 2: $72.14 - Low July 6 
*SUP 3: $71.40 - Hourly resistance June 27 now support 
*SUP 4: $70.02 - Hourly support June 26
*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2018 & 3+yr highs Tuesday remained capped ahead of daily and
weekly bull channel tops. Very O/B daily studies remain key concerns for bulls
and limit follow through. Below $72.14 is now needed to hint at a move back to
$69.44-70.02 with a close below $71.40 to add weight to their case. While $72.14
supports bulls retain an advantage with focus remaining on bull channel tops.

*COMMENTARY: Fresh 2018 & 7mth lows lacked follow through Tuesday with an
aggressive bounce from below the LT rising TL off 2015 lows and ahead of the key
200-WMA ($1234.0). Bears look for a close below the 200-WMA to confirm breaks of
key supports and initially target $1204.5. Bulls need a close above $1262.7 to
return pressure to $1272.7 where the 100-WMA is noted. Correcting O/S studies
are a concern for bears.
