*Entry Price: 26.67    Stop loss: 25.54    Take profit: 28.46

Current Sentiment: Bullish

Support 1: 26.00                   Resistance 1: 27.20

Support 2: 25.81                   Resistance 2: 28.46

The lack of bullish follow through after the last update led to price turning back into the immediate downtrend. Price headed down to test the critical 26.00 psychological support area once again. Interestingly, the current selloff was once again held up firmly by the 26.00 psychological support.

Despite price breaking below the 26.00 psychological support intra-week, the bulls succeeded in closing back above the 26.00 level in the week ended 20/07/18. As a result, a hammer rejection bar was formed suggests a reversal higher next. Moreover, the 26.00 psychological support area also coincided with the 60-week moving average and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level reinforcing this support area as a strong one. The 26.00 psychological support was key interest area back in December 2017 and February 2018 with major reversal to the upside shown by the highlighted areas.

Thus with the current bullish price action rejection off the 26.00 support area, expect price to turn back into the long-term uptrend to test the 27.20 resistance followed by 28.46.
