As a result, the bulls pushed the price above the $6,250 and $6,300 resistance levels. A new 2019 high was formed at $6,315 and the price is likely to extend gains.
An initial support is near the $6,230 level, and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $5,961 low to $6,315 high.
