The decline gained pace below the $1,900 and $1,880 levels. The price even declined below $1,860 and settled well below the 50 hourly simple moving average. A low is formed near $1,848 on FXOpen and the price is currently correcting higher.
It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,917 high to $1,848 low. The price is now trading near a major hurdle at $1,870.
There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,870 on the hourly chart of gold. Above the trend line, the price might face hurdles near the $1,880 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,917 high to $1,848 low.
To move into a positive zone, the price must break the $1,880 resistance and then gain pace above the $1,900 resistance zone. Conversely, the price might resume its decline below the $1,860 and $1,850 levels in the near term. The next major support is seen near the $1,820 level.
