On a four-hour scale, the price is rising significantly, the Marlin Oscillator is a bit restrained. It has all the conditions and grounds for entering the overbought zone. Nevertheless, a correction, a price respite on the way to the target of 147.10 is very likely, and the reversal area for a correction is not very high from the current price, around the level of 144.25 - between Fibonacci levels 261.8 and 271.0% of the growth branch on 2-8 August.
