Prior analysis, daily chart

''The daily chart is showing a W-formation on the candles.

The rule of thumb is that the majority of such formations will see a restest of the prior highs of the pattern which will act as support prior to a bullish continuation. 

In this case, the 61.8% Fibonacci is the key target.''
