Later, there was an upside correction and the price moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2600 high to $0.2190 low.
However, the upside move was capped by the $0.2350 resistance. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2600 high to $0.2190 low also acted as a resistance.
