Gold Price Technical Analysis

Gold price started a decent recovery wave from the $1,785 zone against the US Dollar. The price climbed above the $1,820 and $1,840 resistance levels.

However, the price struggled to clear the $1,855 and $1,860 resistance levels. A high was formed near $1,855 before the price started a fresh decline. There was a break below the $1,840 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

The price is now approaching the $1,820 support zone. The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,784 swing low to $1,855 high is also near the $1,820 level.

If there is a downside break below the $1,820 support level, the price might continue to move down towards the $1,800 level. Any more losses could lead the price towards the $1,784 swing low.

On the upside, the price is likely to face resistance near the $1,830 level. The next major resistance is probably forming near the $1,840 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

The price is now approaching the $57.50 support. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $57.16 swing low to $58.75 high.

The next key support is near the $57.10 level. If the price fails to stay above the $57.10 and $57.00 levels, there are chances of a decline towards the $56.00 support.
