On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $76.00 zone. The next major resistance is near the $76.50 zone. A clear move above the $76.50 resistance could open the doors for another steady increase towards $78 or even $80.
If not, the price might drop again from $76. An immediate support is now forming near the $74 zone. The next major support sits near the $73.50 level. Any more losses might call for a test of the $72.40 support zone in the coming days.
