This development is a positive technical signal. provided that the move is sustainable and we see a follow-through towards at least $210.00, which is reinforced by the upper line of the 1-hour Bollinger Band. Once this resistance area is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $215.00 that served as an upper boundary of the consolidation channel that dominated in the beginning of the week.
