You can see how price is struggling to break past the 50% Fib level. For a number of reasons. Firstly, apart from being a 23.6% Fib retracement level, it’s a natural resistance point as well, due to the earlier resistance shown there on the 15th (circled in green). Also, we see how this afternoon price struggled beyond the upper Bollinger line, which was again at that same 23.6% level. At the same time, Stochastics were now crossing down whilst being undersold, and the Accelerator Oscillator had turned red.
