Looking ahead, the first resistance lies at $2740. This is followed by $2890 (bearish .382 Fib, 50-day MA, & 20-day MA), $3000, and $3135 (bearish .5 Fib).
On the other side, the first support lies at $2600. This is followed by $2470 (.382 Fib), $2333 (.5 Fib & 100-day MA), $2200 (.618 Fib), and $2036 (Feb 2021 highs).
