CABLE: Pulled along by EUR/USD's stronger recovery Thursday, whilst EUR/GBP
again met resistance ahead of Gbp0.9000, which allowed cable to edge to $1.2343.
Rate eased off to $1.2312 during the NY afternoon, closing the day around
$1.2322. Rate marked a low of $1.2309 in early Tokyo, after a slow Asian start,
but again tracked EUR/USD higher as the EUR/GBP was again meeting decent
headwinds as it approaches Gbp0.9000. Cable was able to push up to $1.2358 but
held shy of retesting Tuesday's high of $1.2363, as well as the technical
resistance at $1.2360(50% $1.2643-1.2076). A break of this area to open a move
toward $1.2375/80 ahead of $1.2400. Support $1.2310/00, $1.2285/80, $1.2250. A
break of Gbp0.9000 to expose the topside of its 1.0% 10-dma envelope, currently
coming through at Gbp0.9046.
