As we previously mentioned that there is a potential hidden bearish divergence on the horizon which will confirm itself as soon as a local high is in place. So, it followed the stance. The positive scenario has played out so far along with the break out. Now the red resistance line that has been broken today should hold as support. Also volumes increased from 188.45 million shares in the previous session to 236.45 million shares. If we see rising volume in next few candles it will confirm the break out.

However, a close back below the red line would suggest a swing failure pattern.
