  • Should the current candle close at or below this level, that would mark the steepest weekly sell-off since June 14.

  • A drop below the $31,000 daily support level may result in a deeper drawdown to $28,600 based on June 22's prior low.
  • Low volume, as indicated in Thursday's four-hour view, is consistent with a lack of trading interest in the short-term.
  • Traditional equities in Asia were mixed, with most markets reflecting a change of less than 1%.
