Solid smiley face gone after 48 hours meaning

Hi, newlywed here and we're trying for a baby. 

I had blinking smiley face (high fertility) from 12/21 to 12/26. We had a few intercourses during this window.

On 12/27, my test result had a solid/steady smiley face (peak fertility). It displayed that for 48 hours. We intercoursed everyday from there

Day 12/29: After 48 hours, the solid/steady smiley face disappeared.

Should we continue to have intercourse?

Does it mean ovulation window is closed?

It's very confusing and wished more information was in the instructions.

The test always shows a solid smiley face for 48 hours once it detects the hormone surge (LH) that precedes ovulation. The day it shows up should be the best day to get pregnant. By 48 hours after that surge, most people will have passed the ovulation window and no longer be fertile for that cycle. But the 48 hours of solid smiley after the Lh is detects is a set time for everyone.
