Key Takeaways:

- Positioning: Odds of sustained directional resolve low.

- Potential confirmation of multi-month balance-break.

Otherwise, the auction ought to find responsive buyers near the high-volume node. An initiative drive below that figure would put the rally on hold, and would target first $3,620, and then the node near $3,610.
