support areas coming together at the same time that may well result in a solid

Key Points:

– the 60-min chart finds resistance at a low from
back on April 30th

– the 240-min chart has fib resistance at roughly
the same area, 91.35

– momentum, as defined by the stochastics is
bearish, although the 240-min chart exhibits a bit of upside price pressure
