The price remains pressured below the 200-EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $3,195. Thus make $3,200 a crucial level to trade. The volumes support every time the price bounces from the support level.
Furthermore, the price faces rejection at $3,200 on January 20 and February 10. A renewed buying pressure will push the price toward $3,600.
