A low was formed at $445.98 before the price recovered.
It moved above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $471 high to $445 low. However, the upside move was capped by the previous support near $458-460. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $471 high to $445 low also prevented gains. At the moment, the price is under bearish pressure and is likely to decline towards $445.
