"The hourly chart shows price holding above 100 SMA now at 102.50, while 200 one offers next support at 102.15; indicators lose upward potential but stand well into positive territory, as price pressures Fridays highs."



"In the 4 hours chart the technical outlook is mild positive, as price stands above moving average and indicators head higher around their midlines. However, a clear break above 102.80 is required to confirm a new leg up."
