Looking at the chart, the price is slowly moving in a bullish zone above $120. However, there is a crucial barrier near $122, and the price seems to be struggling for a proper close above the stated level.
Moreover, the price is facing hurdles in a 2-hour close above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $128 swing high to $116 swing low. At the moment, the price is placed comfortably above the $120 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Therefore, a break and close above the $123.50 level and the $124.00 hurdle could open the doors for more gains. Above $124.00, the next resistance is near the last swing high at $128.00.
If the price corrects lower from the current levels, the triangle support at $120 may act as a buy zone. Moreover, the 100 hourly simple moving average is an immediate support near $121.5.
Overall, dips remain supported as long as the price is above $120.
