Strategy: Flat

Prices put in Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at 89.09, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, warning a move lower may be ahead. Initial support is at 88.55, marked by the 38.2% Fib, with a break below that targeting the January 4 high at 88.40. Alternatively, a break higher targets the 61.8% Fib at 89.63. We will look for a pullback to yield a long trade setup in line with our long-term view.
