They were successful in defending more losses in BTG and as a result, the price moved back above $200. The upside move was such that the price was able to break the $230 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

A high was formed at $277.67 from where the price started a downside correction. It moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $190 low to $277 high.
