On a weekly basis price has entered the weekly Kumo (cloud). This is not good for long-term bulls. Price at the end of the week must at least gives a bounce off this weekly support area, otherwise bulls will be in trouble. Last time price tested the weekly Kumo (cloud), price reached the lower cloud boundary and rallied 130$ to $1,350.
