On the one-hour chart, CAKE formed a range (yellow) from $3.84 to $4.12 since 23 November. The mid-point of this range lay at $3.98. The Volume Profile Visible Range tool also showed the Point of Control (POV, red) to be at $3.96. This level was in close proximity to the mid-range value.

Therefore we can conclude that, especially on lower timeframes, $3.96 was the level to beat for the bulls. A retest of this level as support can be bought targeting $4.12 as take profit. However, the Accumulation/Distribution (A/D) indicator has been in a steady decline throughout the time CAKE traded in the aforementioned range. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) was also near neutral 50 to show the lack of strong momentum.

This showed demand was weak. The $3.75-$3.84 was an important zone on the higher timeframe charts such as 12-hour. Until a clean breakout was witnessed, traders can look to the range extremes for good R:R trade opportunities.
