Gold Price Technical Analysis
This past week, gold saw a bearish reaction from the $1,800 zone against the US Dollar. The price traded below the $1,780 support level, but downsides were limited.
The 4-hours chart of XAU/USD indicates that the price tested the $1,760 support zone. A low was formed near $1,760 before there was a fresh increase. The price was able to climb above the $1,775 resistance and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours).
There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,800 swing high to $1,760 low.
On the upside, the price is facing resistance near $1,785. A clear break above $1,785 could send the price toward the $1,800 resistance zone in the near term. The next key resistance is near the $1,820 level.
On the downside, the price might remain supported near $1,770 and the 200 SMA (H4). The main support is near $1,760, below which there is a risk of a break below $1,750.
Looking at EUR/USD, the pair attempted a decent recovery above 1.1620. A clear close above 1.1650 could set the pace for a steady increase.
