Looking at the chart, the price started a sharp upward move and broke many resistances above the $84.00 level. It even succeeded in clearing the $90.00 barrier and the $92.00 resistance.
It traded as high as $94.58 and is currently trading well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. At the moment, the price is correcting lower below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $81.38 low to $94.56 high.

Further below $90.00, the next support is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $81.38 low to $94.56 high at $87.97. However, the most important support is now at $85.00, which was a resistance earlier.
On the upside, the price is facing a tough challenge near the $94.00-95.00 zone. Above this, there are high chances of an upward acceleration towards the $100.00 handle.
