An immediate resistance is near $35.00 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $37.50 high to $30.25 low. Above $35.00, the price is likely to climb towards the $37.00 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Finally, if buyers remain in action in the coming sessions, there are chances of a push towards the $38.00 or even $40.00 level. The main hurdle is the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last drop from the $37.50 high to $30.25 low at $39.20.
