The stochastics are rising yet converging, with the %K seen tailing off in thee overbought, as the MACD diff is positive and diverging on the upside. This suggests we could see higher prices in the near term towards 18.53, before testing the 19.00 level. On the downside, the candle found support at 18.00, and if the prices break through this level, we could see prices retreat back through the 17.87 before 17.66. The evening star formation with long upper and lower wicks points to market uncertainty, and we could see prices moderate today.

The long lower wick points to an increased appetite on the downside, and we could see prices edge lower in the near term.
