There was a clear move below the $1,785 support zone and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The price even traded below the $1,750 level and formed a low near $1,732 on FXOpen. It is now consolidating losses above the $1,730 level.

Gold Price Hourly Chart

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $1,750 level. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,750 on the hourly chart of gold.

The trend line is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,814 swing high to $1,732 low. A clear upside break above the trend line and the 50 hourly simple moving average could send the price towards $1,762.

The main resistance is now forming near the $1,775 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,814 swing high to $1,732 low.

A close above the $1,775 level could open the doors for a steady increase towards $1,800. The next major resistance sits near the $1,815 level. On the downside, an initial support is near the $1,735 level. The next major support is near the $1,725 level, below which there is a risk of a larger decline. In the stated case, the price could decline sharply towards the $1,700 support zone.

Oil Price Technical Analysis

There was a clear move below the $100 support zone and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The price traded as low as $93.16 and the price is now correcting losses. There was a move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $109.50 swing high to $93.16 low.

Oil Price Hourly Chart

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $100.00 level. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $100.10 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD.

The next key resistance is near the $101.30 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $109.50 swing high to $93.16 low, above which the price might accelerate higher towards $105 or even $110.

On the downside, an immediate support is near the $98.50 level. The next major support is near the $95.50 level. If there is a downside break, the price might decline towards $93.20. Any more losses may perhaps open the doors for a move towards the $90.00 support zone.
