Thus, a close below the low end could be an additional sell signal, hinting to press towards $1,400 handle. Although, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

On the other hand, a close above the other side of the trading zone, i.e. above the high end could increase the likelihood of rallying towards the vicinity of $1,555-58. Nevertheless, the weekly resistance area and level marked on the chart should be watched closely.
