On May 7, the bulls rebounded twice at $197 low and reached a high of $216. The bears’ pulled price back as the market fluctuates above $210. The upward move is hampered as bulls break the first resistance.

Possibly, a rebound above $210 is likely to break through the resistances of $220 and $227. The momentum may extend to $240 and $250 price level. Conversely, if the bulls failed to sustain above $210, the downtrend will resume.
