A downward correction is likely to continue.

On the 4-hour chart, the price approached the resistance area 1082.77-1085.55 (23.6% correction for the medium-term trend and 100.0% correction for the short-term trend) and has started correcting down. At present, the price is likely to decline along the 61.8% arc to 1072.18 (61.8% correction) and 1068.06 (50.0% correction). An upward trend would resume only when the price overcomes the resistance area 1082.77-1085.55.
