On May 10 and 11, the bulls aggressively defended the uptrend line. This could have led to short covering by the aggressive bears. The breakout above the 20-day EMA ($8,662) further strengthened the case for a possible retest of $10,000 levels.
The 20-day exponential moving average has started to slope up once again and the relative strength index has bounced off from close to the midpoint. This suggests that the bulls are in command and the path of least resistance is to the upside.
Above $9,200, a move to $10,000 is possible. The bears are likely to mount a stiff resistance between $10,000 and the downtrend line of the symmetrical triangle at $10,700. This zone is likely to be the real test of this up move.
