On the other side, the first level of resistance lies at 2631 SAT (bearish .5 Fib Retracement). This is followed by resistance at 2700 SAT and 2800 SAT (bearish .618 Fib Retracement). Above this, added resistance lies at 2850 SAT, 2900 SAT, and 3000 SAT.
The RSI has dropped from overbought conditions but remains above the 50 line as the bulls are in control of the momentum. Likewise, the Stochastic RSI produced a bearish crossover signal, which would help to send the market lower.
