On the upside, there is an intermediate-term resistance zone from 38.43  40.11.

On the downside, there is an intermediate-term support from 28.84 – 25.36.

For the bears to regain control of the longer-term, we would need to see a close below 25.36.

PAAS is in a corrective phase in a longer-term positive cycle pattern. Given these conditions, we see a likelihood that the stock tests the intermediate-term support at 29 by late August.
