    It spent nearly two years carving support at the 200-day exponential moving average (EMA) in the $30s, finally turning higher in November 2017, and has now posted a higher low at the 50-day EMA.

Rallies failed at the bottom of that resistance zone in 2015, 2016 and January 2018, so bears are likely to force another reversal, using weakness near the round number $50 and the 2015 high at $51.25 to reload positions.
