This figure is still far short of the all-time highs (ATH). Although the retreat was, however, relatively considerably, it seems a return to previous levels of Support reflect.
The shares were recorded, however, in the last weeks dramatic ATHs. The withdrawal is more likely to be due to a gross Overestimation as to the Virus. According to analysts, the market has experienced in the last few days is an unrealistic euphoria, which is why a retreat was expected.
