Ilya Spivak

Prices put in a Bearish Engulfing pattern, hinting a move lower is ahead. The move downward may pave the way to the completion of a Head and Shoulders top. Confirmation of the setup requires a break below support at 139.13, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. Near-term resistance is at 144.79, the January 14 high.
