Gold Price Technical Analysis

This past week, gold saw a bearish reaction from the $1,880 zone against the US Dollar. The price traded below the $1,840 support level to move into a bearish zone.

The 4-hours chart of XAU/USD indicates that the price even traded below the $1,820 support level. There was a close below the $1,800 level, the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours), and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours).

A low was formed near $1,777 and is currently consolidating. An immediate resistance is near the $1,810 level.

The next major resistance is near the $1,825 level and the 100 SMA. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,825 on the same chart. The trend line is also close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,877 swing high to $1,777 low.

A clear break above $1,825 could send the price toward the $1,850 resistance zone in the near term. The next key resistance is near the $1,880 level.

On the downside, the price might remain supported near $1,780. 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 started a steady recovery wave above the 1.1320 level. Besides, GBP/USD could also recover if it settles above 1.3400.
