The uptrend was such that the price gained more than 20% and even tested the $270 level. The price is currently well above the $260 level and placed nicely above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
A swing high is formed at $270 and the price is still showing a lot of positive signs. If there is a downside correction, an immediate support is at $262.

Therefore, if the price corrects lower, it is likely to find a lot of buyers near the $262 or $254 support. On the upside, the $270 level is an immediate resistance. If there is an upside break above $270, the price could rally towards the $285 level. However, the main target for the bulls could be $300 in the coming sessions.
