Gold price found support near the $1,320 level and climbed above the $1,340 resistance area against the US Dollar. The price even broke the key $1,350 resistance area to climb further higher.

The upward move was strong as the price traded close to the $1,360 level. A swing high was formed near $1,358 on FXOpen before the price started a major downside correction.

It broke the $1,355 and $1,350 support levels to move into a short term bearish zone. Moreover, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $1,342 on the hourly chart of gold.

Finally, the price spiked below the $1,340 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. A swing low was formed at $1,336 and the price is currently recovering higher.

It is trading near the $1,342 level, the 50 hourly simple moving average, and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,358 high to $1,336 swing low.

On the upside, there are many hurdles near the $1,344 and $1,347 levels. The main resistance is near the $1,347 level plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,358 high to $1,336 swing low.

A successful close above the $1,347 and $1,348 levels might start a fresh increase towards the $1,355 and $1,360 resistance levels. Conversely, if the price fails to climb above $1,344 and $1,347, it could decline again below $1,340 and $1,335.

However, the decline was protected by the $52.50 level plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $51.92 low to $53.21 high. The price is now moving higher and is trading near the $52.90 and $53.00 resistance levels.

Moreover, there is a major contracting triangle forming with resistance near $53.00 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD. If there is an upside break above the $53.00 barrier, the price could continue higher towards $53.20 and $53.50.

On the downside, the main support is near the $52.40 level, below which crude oil price might start a fresh decline below the $52.00 support area.
