Our third rejection of the red resistance level shown above brought the market into a test of macro support in the mid-$3,000s.

Prior to this drift, the market was quite volatile, with both upward and downward impulses. The three prior rejected tests shot into the level aggressively (a sign of strong demand) but got spat out aggressively (a sign of strong supply).
