The price rocketed higher and easily broke the $7000 handle to form yet another all-time higher. It even broke the $7200 and $7300 levels and posted a high at $7333. Later, a correction wave was initiated and the price moved below the $7200 level. Sellers succeeded in breaking the 38.3% Fib retracement level of the last move up from the $6280 low to $6333 high.

However, the downside move was limited by the $6800 support.
