This cloud support if broken will make the trend bearish for the short-term. Resistance is found at $1,344 and at $1,351.

Magenta line – long-term resistance

Blue line – long-term support

On a weekly basis, we have started this week with another rejection at the long-term resistance trend line. Support is at $1,319 initially and next at $1,300. Breaking below $1,300 will bring the price towards the important cloud support area that expands from $1,290 to $1,240. A breach of $1,290 could mean a move towards $1,240 or even the long-term trend line. Bulls need to clearly break above $1,350 and hold it. If this is the case, we will have a strong run to $1,400-$1,430.
