The price surpassed the $185 resistance level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). It even cleared the $192 resistance level. However, the price failed to clear the $192 resistance zone. A high was formed near $192 and recently there was a downside correction.

There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $192 swing high to $170 low. It is now trading below $180 and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).
