COMMENTARY: Euro-yen tested resistance, despite the bearish daily studies, but bears left
a long upper-shadow after the pair ended the session lower. Bulls met resistance last
session around the Apr 25 high at 129.91, now further resistance alongside the Apr 11
resistance line at 130.16. Initial resistance at 128.49/55/59/68, daily Tenkan, 200-mth MA,
Apr 29 high and 21-DMA. Initial support at 127.06/16/21, the Apr 29 low, 1% MA env
base and Apr 30 low. Break below would threaten daily Bollinger base at 126.51.
