Gold Price Technical Analysis

This week, gold price started a steady increase above the $1,850 level against the US Dollar. It broke a few key hurdles near $1,880 to move further into a positive zone.

The price even settled above the $1,880 zone and the 50 hourly simple moving average. There was a clear break above the $1,900 level and a high was formed near $1,912 on FXOpen. The price is now correcting gains and trading below $1,900.

Gold Price Technical Analysis

There was a break below $1,890, but downsides were limited. The price traded as low as $1,888 and the price is now consolidating. It seems like there is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $1,898 on the hourly chart of gold.

The triangle resistance is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,912 high to $1,888 low. The main resistance is now forming near the $1,900 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,912 high to $1,888 low is also near the $1,900 zone. A clear break above the $1,900 level may possibly open the doors for a move towards the $1,920 level or even $1,935.

On the downside, the price is likely to find bids near $1,888. If there is a downside break below $1,888, there are chances of a move towards the $1,870 level in the near term.

Oil Price Technical Analysis

Crude oil price remained well supported above the $60.00 zone against the US Dollar. As a result, the price started a steady increase above the $63.50 resistance zone.

The price was able to surpass the $64.50 and $65.00 resistance levels. There was also a break above the $66.40 resistance and the 50 hourly simple moving average. A high is formed near $67.30 and the price is now consolidating gains.

Oil Price Technical Analysis

An initial support is near the $66.85 level. It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $65.35 low to $67.30 high.

The main support is now forming near the $66.30 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $65.35 low to $67.30 high. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near $66.00 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD.

A downside break below the trend line could open the doors for a move towards the $65.30 support level. Any more losses may possibly lead the price towards the $64.80 support zone.

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $67.30 level. If there is an upside break above $67.30, the price could test $68.00. The next major resistance is near the $70.00 level.
