The price moved above the $1,500 level and is currently trading comfortably above the stated level. Moreover, the price is above the $1,510 pivot level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. After the last decline to $1,381, the price recovered and moved above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,615 swing high to $1,380 low.

The pair may continue to trade in a range above $1,500 before it makes the next move. A successful close above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,615 swing high to $1,380 low could open the doors for more gains. A break and close above the $1,550 level could clear the path for a push towards $1,600.
On the downside, the $1,500 level remains a major support. A break below it could ignite more losses towards $1,400.
