Nonetheless, because the one-month candle is due to open above the zero.382 fib retracement stage, a transfer up towards the zero.618 of $13,700 is one thing to be enthusiastic about.

As issues stand, if June was to be bearish, a pullback to between $7,400 and $7,600 is the place I’d be inserting some purchase orders, and that’s what I’ll clarify at this time.
