On the downside, the $58,500 level is likely to act as a decent support. The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $57,079 swing low to $59,399 high is also near $58,250. On the upside, the $59,250 zone is a short-term hurdle.

The first major resistance is near the $59,500 level. A clear break above the $59,500 level could increase the chances of an acceleration above the $60,000 zone in the coming sessions.
