Price Technical Analysis of Gold

From the $1,680 area against the US Dollar, the price of gold began a descent upward movement. The resistance levels of $1,700 and $1,720 were overcome by the price.

The XAU/USD 4-hours chart shows that the price gained after breaking through the $1,740 resistance. A crucial negative trend line that served as resistance near $1,755 was clearly crossed.

In addition, the price surged over the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the decline from the swing high of $1,879 to the low of $1,680. Even the 100 simple moving average, the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours), and the $1,750 barrier were breached by the price.

Near the $1,800 mark, there is the next significant barrier. It is close to the 61.8 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the decline from the swing high of $1,879 to the low of $1,680.

The price may move toward the $1,825 mark if there are any additional gains. On the downside, the $1,765 level and the 100 simple moving average provide first support.

Near $1,750 is the next significant support, below which the price may continue to decline quickly. In the aforementioned scenario, the price might drop to around $1,720.

Looking at EUR/USD, the pair continues to encounter a significant resistance close to 1.0280. Additionally, the GBP/USD pair corrected lower from the 1.2300 region.
