It was under a lot of pressure, which resulted in a push below $0.9000. A low was formed near $0.8817 from where the price started an upside correction above the $0.9000 level.
It is currently testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1.0811 high to $0.8817 low. There are many hurdles on the upside for buyers starting with $0.9500.
