US 5YR FUTURE TECHS: (Z17) Correction Continues, 117-280/117-272 Next Key Area
*RES 4: 118-237 Sep 11 high
*RES 3: 118-192 Sep 10 low, now resistance
*RES 2: 118-132 Sep 13 high
*RES 1: 118-072 Sep 15 high
*PRICE: 117-317 @1030GMT
*SUP 1: 117-272/280 61.8% Fibo of 117-035/119-015, Aug 16 low
*SUP 2: 117-245/255 50% Fibo 116-155/119-015, Aug 4 low
*SUP 3: 117-170/180 Jul 25 low, 76.4% Fibo of 117-035/119-015
*SUP 4: 117-132/147 Jul 6 low, 61.8% Fibo of 116-155/119-015
*COMMENTARY* Having lost support from the 9 week bull channel earlier in the
week, last Thursday we traded below the next key area between 118-097/118-090.
Loss continues the correction of the 117-035/119-015 gains seen since early
July. This now sees the potential for a deeper fall towards the next set of
supports from 117-280/117-272. Meanwhile, resistance falls to 118-072/118-132,
above here currently needed for some near term respite.
     
US 10YR FUTURE TECHS: (Z17) 126-155/126-180 The Bar To Any Recovery Hopes
*RES 4: 127-015 Hourly high Sep 11 
*RES 3: 126-250 Sep 13 high
*RES 2: 126-180 Sep 14-15 highs
*RES 1: 126-155 Hourly resistance
*PRICE: 126-045 @1040GMT
*SUP 1: 126-010/020 Aug 17 low, Jul 24 high
*SUP 2: 125-240 61.8% Fibo of 124-140/127-285
*SUP 3: 125-215 Aug 16 low
*SUP 4: 125-175 Aug 8 low
*COMMENTARY* Lost support from the base of the 9 week bull channel last week,
now trying to move clearly below the 6 month rising support line, at 126-045 by
time today. A low of 126-010 so far, in line with the Aug 17 low and Jul 24
high. Sustained break below here will look to test 125-240/125-215 next. In the
meantime, while 126-045/126-010 can contain the fall, look to 126-155/126-180
for resistance. Back above the latter would be very helpful to any recovery.

*RES 4: 156-29 Sep 11 high

*COMMENTARY* Last week saw the the loss of both 156-07 support and the rising
support line from the late July lows. This followed by the key 154-30 level on
Thursday. A low of 154-04 seen so far, in line with the next important area of
support coming from the 61.8% Fibo retrace level and the lower 1% volatility
band. In the meantime, resistance falls to 155-04/155-18, presently require a
move back above here to ease pressure. Lose 154-04 and 153-24/153-05 next.
     US EURODOLLAR TECHS: (Z17) Six Month Rising Support Line Gives Way
*RES 4: 98.655 May 18 high
*RES 3: 98.635 Sep 8 high
*RES 2: 98.600/610 Aug 29 high, Sep 8 low
*RES 1: 98.575 Broken 6 month support line
*PRICE: 98.535 @1055GMT
*SUP 1: 98.520 Jul 25-Jul 26 lows
*SUP 2: 98.495 Jul 6 low, 50% Fibo of 98.335-98.655
*SUP 3: 98.470 Apr 24 low
*SUP 4: 98.455 61.8% Fibo of 98.335-98.655
*COMMENTARY* Failed to take advantage of the break above 98.590/98.600 earlier
in the month, a high of 98.635 before giving up ground again. This culminated in
a drop below the 6 month rising support line last Thursday. This suggests that
there is initially scope for a return towards the Jul 6 low at 98.495, via
98.520 support. In the interim, nearest resistance comes from the broken support
line at 98.575, with 98.600-98.610 above.
