Gold (XAU/USD) is attempting a minor bounce from six-week lows of $1817. However, the further upside appears elusive as the Treasury yields continue its surge on US stimulus hopes and drive the US dollar higher.

Investors remain hopeful that US President-elect Joe Biden will announce a bigger fiscal stimulus package when he makes an important economic speech on Thursday.

Gold Price Chart: Key resistances and supports

The Technical Confluences Indicator shows that gold has recaptured strong resistance at $1927, which is the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day.

The buyers now target the next relevant upside target at $1940, where the SMA200 one-day lies.

Acceptance above the latter is needed to bolster the recovery momentum, as the $1850 hurdle will come into play. That level is the confluence of the previous high four-hour and Fibonacci 23.6% one-day.

Further up, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month at $1857 could be tested.

Alternatively, a drop below the abovementioned key resistance now support at $1927 could trigger a quick drop towards $1815, the pivot point one-month S1.

The bears could then challenge the pivot point one-day S1 at $1811, which is the last resort for the bulls.
