Gold recovers losses, as the bulls look to regain control amid persistent downbeat tone around the US dollar. The greenback remains undermined by the sharp drop in the US Treasury yields, fiscal impasse and US-China optimism.  

The yellow metal will continue to track the dollar moves amid a lack of significant US economic news, as attention turns towards the FOMC minutes due out on Wednesday. How is gold positioned technically?                           

XAU/USD: Key resistances and supports

The tool shows that gold is flirting with the $1951 hurdle, which is the convergence of the SMA5 one-day and Bollinger Band one-day Middle.

Up next, the bulls’ commitment will get tested at $1953, the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day.

A brief rally could be expected on a break above the latter, opening doors towards $1961, the intersection of pivot point one-day R1 and previous day high.

Alternatively, a bunch of minor supports could slow down the decline until the $1935 level gets attacked. That level is the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week.

The recovery momentum will remain intact as long as the price holds above the critical support at $1931, where the Fibonacci 23.6% one-week and pivot point one-day S2 meet.

Here is how it looks on the tool
