Red lines - bearish divergence signs

Green line - support

Short-term support is found at $1,325 and next at $1,316-$1,309. Price has most probably completed the entire rise from $1,237. It is time for a correction. Important levels to watch out for apart from $1,309 are at $1,280 and $1,250.

Magenta line - resistance

Blue line - support

On a weekly basis, we have come very close to the long-term resistance of $1,250. A rejection here will be a bearish sign. However only a weekly close below $1,290 could push price towards $1,250 where the Ichimoku cloud support is found or even towards the blue long-term trend line support at $1,210.
