The resistance is provided by the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement on the downtrend from the May 18 high of 2,605 ringgit to the June 8 low of 2,390 ringgit. The former resistance at 2,441 ringgit caused a deep correction while the resistance at 2,472 failed to do so. Chances are the current resistance may trigger a decent correction.

A break above 2,498 ringgit could lead to a gain into the range of 2,523-2,554 ringgit.
