At this juncture, considering the weekly support, the price would now be expected to correct to the upside and restest the resistance of the $1,800 level again.
On the way there, $1,785 will be the first hurdle until the 38.2%, old support and psychological round number, $1,800, confluence.

In doing so, this will be firming $1,785 as a strong level of resistance and cementing the downside bias for lower lows and continuation of the bearish cycle 2021.
