Price appears to be pushing above resistance at the 200-day moving average and making a higher high compared to the last high on May 12th, a bullish signal. The RSI is holding above a rising trend line and currently sitting over 60. If price continues to rise we are likely to see a retest of resistance at the $88.00 level and a further push towards $95.00. If price falls below the 20-day moving average support we could see a fall towards $77.00 and possible acceleration down towards $68.00.
