I.e. the bears managed to push price down to the 50% line at 10.25 (although I thought it would test 61.8% at 10.16), before bouncing back towards the high from midweek.

When price behaves in such a manner, almost exactly performing what the trader had calculated, it provides the trader with fuelling confidence in the tried and trusted technicals.

A great end to a great week.
