  • The stacking order of the three major MAs (50-hour below 100-hour below 200-hour) indicates the path of least resistance is to the downside.

  • A short-term bull reversal would be confirmed if prices close today above previous day’s  high of $1,182. On the other hand, a close below $1160.37 (previous day’s low) would only bolster the already bearish technical setup.
