Gold Price Technical Analysis

This past week, gold saw a bearish reaction from the $1,795 level against the US Dollar. The price traded below the $1,785 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 $1,758 before there was a decent recovery wave.

The price was able to climb above the $1,770 level, but it is still below the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours) and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours). It is also facing resistance near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,796 swing high to $1,758 low.

The first key resistance is forming near the $1,780 level. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,784 on the same chart.

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 $1,765 and $1,760. The next key support is near $1,750, below which there is a risk of a move towards $1,720.

Looking at EUR/USD, the pair attempted is still trading well below the 1.1620 and 1.1650 resistance levels.
