askSlim Technical Briefing:

The weekly cycle analysis suggests that FL is in a declining phase with a short-term bottom due to form. Weekly momentum is negative.

On the upside, there is an intermediate-term Fibonacci resistance zone from 37.78 – 41.63. On the downside, there is an intermediate-term Fibonacci extension zone from 30.92 – 27.95. Our analysis suggests that for the bulls to regain control of the intermediate-term, we would likely need to see a weekly close above 44.37.
