There is evidently a reluctance to buy considering the pace of the correction and this is where another downside opportunities could arise once again.

The following illustrates where the opportunity could come from within a continuation of the current correction:

Monthly chart

Against the market’s bias and the dominant lower real yields narrative, the price could be shaping up for a downside extension considering there has been enough of a correction already.

Moreover, the price is struggling to break beyond the resistance structure. 

Weekly chart

Meanwhile, a break below and close below the current weekly support at the end of this week would open scope for a downside continuation.

Daily chart

From a daily perspective, again, there is a bearish bias below the structure. 

4-hour chart

There is still work to do.

The price needs to retrace to at least a 38.2% Fibonacci before resistance is fully tested. 

MACD remains bullish while above the zero-line, so there is no bearish confirmation as of yet. 

Bears, whoever will want to see the price start to consolidate below a newly formed bearish structure for while MACD will track and, eventually, confirm a bearish setup.
