The upside is capped off at the $61 resistance barrier, which is a solid level, as seen in the daily confluence detector. The support walls protect the downside at $59.25, $57.85 and the 50-bar SMA ($55.50). A break below these walls will take the price down to the 200-bar SMA ($53.15) and 100-bar SMA ($51.20). These levels look strong enough to absorb any residual selling pressure.
