Gold is still stuck near the key support level at $1800. Gold has recently made another attempt to settle below this level, but this attempt yielded no results. In case gold manages to get above the nearest resistance level at the 20 EMA at $1805, it will get to the test of the 50 EMA at $1810 which may provide some support to silver.

Meanwhile, gold/silver ratio managed to get above 71.50 and is moving towards the $72 level. If gold/silver ratio manages to settle above 72, it will head towards the recent highs near 72.85 which will be bearish for silver.
