COMMENTARY: Dollar-yen left a long-lower shadow yesterday, cautioning bears,
despite the large negative divergence on 10-day momentum. Price action continues
to hang around just below the Apr 11 high of 99.95, with bulls chomping to
retest this level and break above. Further res seen at 100.18/19/53, the Feb 11
res line, mthly Ichimoku top and 2.00% upper MA env. Continued failure to break
above could send the pair lower, the Apr 4 supp line lies at 98.10.
