Gold Price Technical Analysis

The price of gold experienced a sharp decline from the $1,875 resistance region against the US Dollar. It transacted at a price below the $1,850 support and strived to drop towards $1800 but was wedged by strong support levels.

On the 4-hours chart of XAUUSD, it shows that the price resolved beneath the $1,850 level, the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours), and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours).

Lately, it transacted as low as $1,804 then began an upside correction. A ride above the $1,825 and $1,830 levels was seen. There was a short-term projection above the $1,845 level and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours).

Still, gold is constrained by a strong resistance near the $1,850 level. A confirmed move above the $1,850 resistance could trigger a bull run above the $1,860 resistance region. The succeeding resistance level stays close to $1,875.

If no further uptrend is experienced, the price will likely decline in gains and test the $1820 support. The succeeding key support is close to the $1,815, beneath which further price decline will possibly set in towards $1,800.

For USD/JPY, a new increase was observed and it ascended higher to a fresh multi-year high above 136.00.
