Gold Price Technical Analysis

Gold prices started a fresh increase above the $2,335 resistance against the US Dollar. It traded above the $2,350 zone before the bears appeared.

The 4-hour chart of XAU/USD indicates that the price traded as high as $2,378 and settled above the 100 Simple Moving Average (red, 4 hours) and the 200 Simple Moving Average (green, 4 hours).

Recently, there was a downside correction from the $2,378 level and the price declined below $2,355. The price dipped below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,277 swing low to the $2,378 high.

On the downside, the 100 Simple Moving Average (red, 4 hours) is the key at $2,328. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,277 swing low to the $2,378 high.

The next support sits at the 200 Simple Moving Average (green, 4 hours) and $2,315. A downside break below the $2,315 support might call for more downsides. The next major support is near the $2,280 level. Any more losses might send Gold prices toward $2,265.
