The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent dive from the $2,074 high to $1,862 low. To start a fresh increase, gold price must clear the $1,965 and $1,970 resistance levels. In the mentioned case, it could revisit the $2,000 level.

The next major support is near the $41.65 level, below which the price is likely to continue lower towards the $40.50 level in the coming sessions. Any further losses could lead it towards the $40.00 pivot level.

Conversely, oil price might continue to rise above the $43.00 and $43.10 levels. The next major hurdle for the bulls could be $43.60, above which there are chances of a sharp rise. In the mentioned case, the bulls are likely to aim a test of the main $45.00 resistance in the near term.
