The price is now struggling to clear a key resistance zone near $10,800. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $11,192 high to $10,140 swing low. A successful break and close above the $10,800 resistance could open the doors for more gains above the $11,000 resistance.
The next major resistance is near the $11,200 level, above which the bulls are likely to aim a larger increase towards the $11,500 level in the near term.
