If there are more downsides, the price might find a strong support at $630. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $616 swing low to $652 high. On the upside, the price is facing a major hurdle near the $650 level.

A successful close above the $650 level could spark another rally. The next key resistance is near $680, above which the price could test $700.
