KOREAN WON: USD/KRW trades at KRW1,231.25, virtually unchanged at typing, as it
has given up opening gains. The initial bullish target is provided by Apr 21
high of KRW1,240.90. A break above there would expose Apr 2 high of KRW1,242.55.
Bears look for a drop below May 11 trough at KRW1,214.35, which would shift
focus to Apr 10/Mar 27 lows of KRW1,206.90/1,205.20.
