It seems that all-important technical barriers are clustered below the current price. The strong support on approach to $3,840 is created by a confluence of technical indicators, including SMA100 and SMA10 4-hour,  SMA50 and SMA10 1-hour, midline line of 1hour Bollinger Bands and Fibo retracement 61.8% daily.

The next barrier around $3,800 is protected by a combination of significant SMA levels including SMA100 and SMA200 1-hour, DMA10 and SMA50 4-hour. Also, there is a Midline of daily Bollinger Bands and 161.8% Fibo projection daily. Once this area is broken, the downside might gain traction with the next focus as low as $3,650 strengthened by Fibo retracement 61.8% monthly located on approach.

The way to the North looks less complicated. A series of technical level are clustered above the current price and on approach to psychological $3,900. They include 23.6% Fibo retracement daily and the upper boundary of 1-hour Bollinger Band.  

A move higher will take us to $4,000 (Fibo 23.6% monthly and 61.8% Fibo retracement weekly) and up to $4,200 preceded by the previous week and previous month high.
