The pair quoted towards the support of $ 9,400 and decreased below the simple moving average of 100 (4 hours). More importantly, there was a break below the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave, from the minimum of $ 8,250 to the maximum of $ 11,650. It has opened the doors for more losses below $ 10,000. On the downside, the support of $ 9,350 is suffering losses and is avoiding declines. In case of a break below $ 9,350, the price may even decrease below the $ 9,000 level. An intermediate support is close to the Fibonacci retracement level of 76.4% of the last wave from the minimum of $ 8,250 to the maximum of $ 11,650.
