   “¢   The commodity extended last week’s rejection slide from $1235 horizontal resistance and remains within striking distance of an important horizontal support.

   “¢   Technical indicators on the said chart hold in bearish territory and hence, a follow-through weakness, possibly back towards YTD lows, remains a distinct possibility.
