On the upside, there is an intermediate-term Fibonacci confluence zone from 79.1982.71. On the downside, there is an intermediate-term support zone from 70.5868.58. For the bears to regain control of the intermediate-term, we would likely need to see a weekly close below cycle low support at 66.79.
