Review (image 1)
In the course of the last trading year, the price was not sustainably able to surpass the intermediate high at approx. $133.00 from the year 2015. Since then, a mid-term downward trend has formed, offering attractive chances for short entries.
Outlook (image 2)
The combination of two trend sizes running in the short direction and an acceptable correction up to the 61.8 Fibonacci level, which is simultaneously emerging as a correction zone of the smaller trend size and therefore a solid resistance area, makes the value even more attractive. It should also be mentioned that the higher volume in the downwards movements and the below-average volume in the current correction provide support too.
Parameters for the short scenario:
Entry: depending on the course, approx. $119.60 or $127.00
Stop: depending on the course, approx. $122.50 or $ 129.00
Target 1: $112.00 – $113.00
Target 2: $106.00 – $107.00
Horizon: short to mid-term
