The $1.3-$1.4 golden pocket could revive the former uptrendA set of Fibonacci retracement levels (yellow) was plotted based on ARB’s move up from $1.15 to $1.82 last week. It showed the 61.8% and 78.6% retracement levels lay at $1.4 and $1.295, respectively.
The area within these two levels is the golden pocket. If the lower timeframe downtrend of ARB was to reverse, this would be an ideal zone. The $1.42 level of resistance had been significant in late March. Hence, the recent breakout past it and the subsequent retracement could be a buying opportunity.

The RSI also showed a downtrend in progress with a reading of 37. Traders must not give in to either panic or FOMO, and can wait for a move back above $1.5 before looking to buy ARB.
