SUP 1: 1.2843/62/63 Low May 15, Jul 2012 Support line, 76.4% of 1.2746-1.3243
SUP 2: 1.2744/46 Weekly Bollinger band base, Reversal low Apr 4
SUP 3: 1.2662 Nov 2012 reversal low
SUP 4: 1.2457 Apr 2009 reversal low

COMMENTARY: Euro-dollar pushes through the daily Bollinger base to trade just above
a key Jul 2012 support line, initial support at 1.2862. Yesterday saw a break
below this level, extending to a low of 1.2843, however bulls managed to close
above. Continued failure to close below the Jul 2012 support line could reverse
sentiment but a break below would encourage bears to test the Apr 4 reversal low
at 1.2746. We note the bear-cross of the 55 and 200-DMAs, a bearish signal.
