On the downside, the price is currently struggling at the blue zone which has been tested six times on the chart. From a technical point of view, it does also confluence with the grey upward sloping trendline and this could make it stronger. Below that, the red shaded area also looks firm as there have been many touches around that zone too. The $1800/oz area has been a massive psychological area over the last few months and there could be some support there too. Lastly, the consolidation low is at the black support level at $1762.2/oz.
