Additionally, the price broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $447 low to $528 high.

The mentioned support is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $447 low to $528 high. The pair is currently trading well below $500 with a bearish angle. Should there be a downside break below the $488 level, there could be more declines towards the $475 level.
