Gold Price Technical Analysis

Gold price started a downside correction from the $1,875 resistance zone against the US Dollar. The price traded below the $1,855 support zone.

The 4-hours chart of XAU/USD indicates that the price settled below the $1,855 level and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours). It even moved below the $1,845 level and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours).

However, it found support near the $1,835 zone. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near $1,845 on the same chart.

On the upside, the price might face resistance near $1,860 or the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours). The main resistance is now forming near the $1,865 and $1,875 levels.

A clear move above the $1,875 resistance might send the price towards the $1,900 resistance. The next major resistance sits near $1,920.

If there is no upside break move, the price could trim gains and test the $1,835 support. The next major support is near the $1,820 level, below which it could even test $1,800.
