Once it is cleared, psychological $170.00 will come into focus, followed by SMA200 (1-hour) ant $170.60. The next resistance lies with $173.30 (SMA50 1-hour) and $174.40 (23.6% Fibo retracement level). 

On the downside, the first support area is created by 50% Fibo retracement at $159.78. This barrier stopped the sell-off during early Asian hours. Once it is broken, the downside may gain traction with the next focus on $157.50 (SMA100 4-hour) and $153.33 (61.8% Fibo retracement).
