On the daily chart, the classic 1-2-3 pattern has formed, as:

  • 1 Pivot point appeared after a strong trend movement.
  • The price broke through the previous trend line and set the 2 pivot point
  • The price could not renew the previous high (3 pivot point lower than the 1 one).

There are two trading options available for trading this pattern.

  • If the price rises higher than the 3 pivot point ($75), it will move up to $82.5.
  • On the contrary, if the price breaks through 2 pivot point level ($67.5), the target will be $60.
