On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $9,800 level or the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $9,892 high to $9,393 low. If there is a clear break above the $9,800 resistance, the price is likely to continue higher towards the $9,880 and $10,000 resistance levels.

Any further gains above the $10,000 resistance zone could open the doors for a fresh monthly high above $10,400 in the coming sessions.
