Gold Price Technical Analysis

On the hourly chart of Gold at FXOpen, the price was able to climb above the $2,150 resistance, as mentioned in the previous analysis. The price even broke the $2,180 level before the bears appeared.

The price traded close to the $2,200 zone before there was a downside correction. There was a move below the $2,180 pivot zone. The price settled below the 50-hour simple moving average and RSI dipped below 50. Finally, it tested the $2,150 zone.

The price is now consolidating losses near the $2,160 level. Immediate resistance on the upside is near the $2,166 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,179 swing high to the $2,152 low.

The next major resistance is near a key bearish trend line at $2,170. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,179 swing high to the $2,152 low.

An upside break above the $2,170 resistance could send Gold price toward $2,180. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $2,200 level. If there is no recovery wave, the price could continue to move down.

Initial support on the downside is near the $2,164 level. The first major support is $2,150. If there is a downside break below the $2,150 support, the price might decline further. In the stated case, the price might drop toward the $2,132 support.

Oil Price Technical Analysis

On the hourly chart of WTI Crude Oil at FXOpen, the price started a decent increase against the US Dollar. The price gained bullish momentum after it broke the $78.20 resistance.

There was a sustained upward move above the $79.20 and $80.00 levels. The bulls pushed the price above the 50-hour simple moving average and the RSI climbed toward 65. A high was formed near $81.00 before there was a downside correction.

The price is still stable above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $76.48 swing low to the $81.02 high. However, the bulls are active above a connecting bullish trend line with support near $80.60.

Immediate resistance is near the $81.00 level. If the price climbs further higher, it could face resistance near $82.00. The next major resistance is near the $83.20 level. Any more gains might send the price toward the $85.00 level.

Conversely, the price might correct gains and test the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $76.48 swing low to the $81.02 high at $78.20.

The next major support on the WTI crude oil chart is near $76.50. If there is a downside break, the price might decline toward $75.00. Any more losses may perhaps open the doors for a move toward the $73.50 support zone.
