Price will likely continue to advance towards the record high of roughly 266.00. If price can breakout to the upside of 266.00, then its first Fibonacci target would be 309.00.

If price closes below the 50-day SMA, it would be a bearish signal that could send price down to 221.00. If price fails to bounce off of 221.00, then price could fall further to 196.00.
