Nevertheless, the is a another Doji candlestick pattern made at the top ot the move, which indicates a possible reversal of the local up trend. Currently, the market is testing the short-term trend line support around the level of $227, but if the intraday support located at the level of $221.31 is clearly violated, the odds for another low are high as the momentum is still weak and negative. The next target for bears is seen at the level of $209.89.
