Gold Price Technical Analysis
Gold price started a strong increase from the $1,500 support zone against the US Dollar. There was a clear break above the $1,600 and $1,800 resistance levels.
The price accelerated its gains above the $1,850 level and settled well above the 50-day simple moving average. It traded to a new multi-year high at $1,888 on FXOpen and it is currently consolidating gains.
An initial support on the downside is near the $1,865 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,790 low to $1,888 high. The main support on the downside is forming near the $1,850 level.
There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near $1,830 on the daily chart of gold. An intermediate support could be near the $1,840 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,790 low to $1,888 high.
Any further losses may perhaps open the doors for a larger decline towards the $1,810 and $1,800 levels in the near term. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $1,890 level.
The first major resistance is near the $1,900 level. A clear break above the $1,900 barrier might call for a new all-time high in the coming days.
Oil Price Technical Analysis

It is now trading nicely above the $38.00 support and the 50-day simple moving average. The first resistance on the upside is near the $44.50 and $44.60 levels.
The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $65.42 high to $11.05 swing low is also near the $44.65 level. A successful break above the $44.65 level might call for a strong push towards the $50.00 resistance in the near term.

The main support is forming near the $38.20 level and the 50-day simple moving average. Any further losses may perhaps start a strong decline below $38.00. The next target for the bears might be the $35.00 support zone.
