The basic technical analysis points to a sideways trending this year. The channel ranges from about 88 USD up to 102 USD . The lower boundary of the channel is also formed by the psychological level. According to our estimate of intrinsic value, the market price is currently slightly above the negative (96 USD – red highlight) but still below the neutral (126 USD – blue highlight) scenario. In addition, the positive scenario (160 USD ) estimates the intrinsic value at new historical highs. The last upward rebound was very consistent, however, the Fibonacci retracement level of 61.80% together with the divergence between the price development and the RSI could slow down the bulls a bit.
