There was an inverse head and shoulders pattern formed on the hourly chart, which played well and pushed the price higher.

There are many positive signs, which shows that the price might head higher in the near term. Additionally, the 100 hourly simple moving average was breached, which might act as a support area if the price moves lower from the current levels. Moreover, the price could find bids around the broken neckline resistance area, which could well act as a support for buyers. Any further downsides may perhaps negate the bullish view and might take the price lower from the current levels. The MACD is under divergence that is a warning sign moving ahead.

On the upside, an initial hurdle is around the 245.00 level, which if breached might open the doors for a test of the next swing area at 250.00.

Intraday Support Level – 232.00

Intraday Resistance Level – 250.00

The hourly RSI has moved below the 50 level, which is concerning sign looking ahead.
