- Bulls Lose Steam Near 104.00 Ceiling
- H4 Chart Offers Warning Of A Pullback

A Bearish Engulfing formation on the four hour chart may offer an advance warning of a pullback if confirmed by a successive down-period. A crawl under the nearby 103.67 floor could set the scene for an extended decline toward the former range-top at 103.00.
