resistance at 1.5546/61/70, the upper daily Bollinger, 100-DMA and 21-week MA. Further resistance at 1.5590/5606, the channel top and 50.0% 1.6381-1.4832. Daily studies still
rising, but beginning to suggest overbought. Bears may attempt to recover some
gains, initial support at 1.5457/73/95, the 5-month MA, Apr 29 low and 5-DMA.
