The recovery in Gold (XAU/USD) from Friday’s sell-off lost legs, as sellers returned on Monday amid resurgent demand for the US dollar across the board. Stronger US unemployment rate and wage growth data continue to lend support to the dollar bulls. Meanwhile, the sell-off in GBP/USD due to rising Brexit concerns, add to the buoyant tone around the greenback.

Looking ahead, the dollar could likely hold its upbeat momentum amid light trading and tepid risk tone, which may keep the XAU sellers hopeful. Let’s take a look at how the yellow metal is positioned on the charts.  

Gold: Key resistances and supports

The tool shows that gold faced rejection just below the critical barrier at $1946, which is the convergence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month and SMA10 one-day.

Only a sustained break above the latter will save the day for the bulls, opening doors for a test of the next strong cap at $1950, where the previous day high, pivot point one-day R1 and SMA5 one-day coincide.

To the downside, immediate support is aligned at $1929, the confluence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day and Bollinger Band 15-minutes Lower.

The next powerful cushion awaits at $1916, which could challenge the bears’ commitment. That level is the intersection of the previous day low and pivot point one-day S1.

Meanwhile, acceptance below $1913, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month, will expose the $1900 mark.

Here is how it looks on the tool
