COMMENTARY: Dollar-yen holds above the Feb 11 former resistance line, still initial
support now at 102.05, just above the 2.00% MA envelope top at 102.01. 10-day
momentum shows negative divergence while daily and weekly slow stochastic study are
overbought, a break below initial supp may spur some consolidation, further key
support around 100.36/54/67, the 23.6% 92.57-102.76, the May 10 low and Tenkan
line. Otherwise, bulls will attempt to break above the May 15 high at 102.76. resized 600
