Technical Analysis of Gold

In relation to the US dollar, gold’s price increased quickly above the $1,750 resistance level. The resistance levels of $1,760 and $1,780 were overcome by the price.

The XAU/USD 4-hours chart shows that the price even broke the $1,800 mark. There were, however, few gains over $1,800. Before there was a negative adjustment, the price reached a high of $1,807.

The levels of $1,800 and $1,795 were moved down. The upward movement from the $1,680 swing low to the $1,807 high was retraced upward at a 23.6% Fibonacci level, which was breached by the price.

Additionally, it fell below a crucial bullish trend line on the same chart with support at $1,792. On the downside, the $1,768 mark and the 100 simple moving average provide first support (red, 4-hours).

Below the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours), which is the next significant support, the price may continue to decline quickly. In the aforementioned scenario, the price may potentially fall to the $1,745 mark.

On the upside, buyers may come into play close to the $1,790 mark. Near the $1,800 mark, there is the next significant barrier. The price may move toward the $1,825 mark if there are any additional gains.

Regarding the EUR/USD pair, losses continued below the 1.0200 level as the price tested the 1.0120 support, which is where the bulls re-emerged.
