The decline was such that the price traded close to the key support at $6,460, which was a resistance earlier. It acted as solid support and prevented more losses. There is also a connecting bullish trend line in place with support at $6,470 on the same chart.

Finally, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $7,020 high to $6,460 low is also near the same trend line. Therefore, a break above the trend line and the $6,590 resistance will most likely open the doors for more gains.
