The price has changed little today, has tried to decrease after the last four days decrease, could come down to retest the median line (ML) of the major ascending pitchfork before will climb much higher. Is expected to increase further after the false breakdown below the median line (ML) of the major ascending pitchfork and after the breakout from the minor descending pitchfork's body. The perspective remains bullish as long as the price is trading above the median line (ML) of the major ascending pitchfork. The failure to drop below the 76.4% Fibonacci line has invalidated the potential Head and Shoulders pattern, is somehow expected to approach again the 100% Fibonacci line and the upper median line (UML) of the major ascending pitchfork.

I've added a minor ascending pitchfork on the H4 chart, will increase further as long as will stay inside this minor pitchfork's body, we'll have a great buying opportunity if the price will come down to test and retest the median line (ML) and the lower median line (lml) of the minor ascending pitchfork, could be attracted by the median line (ml) of the minor ascending pitchfork.
