With the breakdown of this region, it can be followed in which direction the movement will continue. Yesterday evening, the level of 52,000 dollars was seen again, but it could not be maintained. If the resistance level of $52,300 is broken upwards and persistence is achieved above it, levels of 52,800 and then $53,300 can be targeted. In case of a withdrawal, if the support zone of $ 50,650 is broken downwards and persistence is maintained below it, a retreat movement towards the $ 49,750 region may be seen.
