The pair failed to gain momentum after the break, but it settled above the trend line and $3,850, which is a positive sign. The price traded as high as $3,872 and it is currently correcting lower. It broke the $3,860 support and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $3,832 low to $3,872 high.
