The main support is near the $19.75 and $19.60 levels (the recent breakout levels). If the price fails to stay above the $19.60 support, there is a risk of a sharp decline towards the $18.00 support and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

The next major resistance on the upside is near the $23.20 level, above which the bulls are likely to aim a test of the $25.00 resistance zone.
