You will then notice that price is at the highest level at some points ( These are called higher highs in general ) but does not go above that zone marked with two dashed lines on top. So this particular area is a strong resistance zone and price is unable to go pass that area.  Higher the number of higher highs means a stronger resistance zone ( How to draw  resistance lines in a forex chart ? look for at least 2 to 3 higher highs and mark the zone.
