The $5 mark is an important round number that the bulls will be eager to beat. Also, it had confluence with the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level. This was based on the move down from $5.35 to $4.22 in December.

To the north, a pool of liquidity ranged from $5 to $5.15. This region may see less selling pressure on the time frame. On the daily chart, the RSI showed strong bullish momentum with a reading of 61 and the OBV also posted gains.

Traders can wait for a decisive move above $5.11 before buying. Alternatively, they can wait for a move to the $5.11-$5.15 region and look for a drop below $5 before entering short positions. As it is, the market had yet to show its hand.

A further rise in prices coupled with rising OI will signal strong bullish sentiment, and buyers may look for buying opportunities on a lower time frame. Meanwhile, a rejection at the $5.11 level and a session close below $5 thereafter could interest the bears.
