Prices moved sideways, but the trend remains upward sloping after prices broke out on Wednesday. Support is seen near the 10-day moving average at 4.04. Target resistance is seen near the 2018 highs at 4.92. Short-term momentum has turned neutral as the fast stochastic nearly generated a crossover sell signal. The current reading on the fast stochastic is 83, above the overbought trigger level of 80, which foreshadows a recession. Medium-term momentum remains positive as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) histogram prints in positive territory with an upward sloping trajectory which points to higher prices.
