• The post-Christmas up-move has been along a short-term ascending trend-channel, which was now seemed to act as an immediate hurdle.
• Slightly overbought technical indicators on the daily chart turned out to be one of the key factors that prompted some profit-taking.
• However, oscillators on hourly charts maintained their bullish bias and hence, the pull-back might still be categorized as a buying opportunity.
