theare currently extremely , support is at 192-193.50 , huge resistance at 200, if is large enough to break through then next resistance will be in the 210 range.
If we break the currentthen we still have some support at 190.
In the chance that things completely turn around, the lowest i see it going is 160, but I do not see this happening any time soon.
I advice you to buy if the price break the risistance levels of 210 USD to 250 USD, because this will lead the price to the targets around 400 USD to 500 USD .
