A high was formed near $2960 and the price started a downside correction. It traded below the $2800 support.

The pair traded below the $2600 support and formed a low at $2543. Later, an upside wave was initiated and the price moved above the $2600 level. It also moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $2960 high to $2543 low. However, the upside wave was protected by the $2750 resistance level.
