Gold prices have stabilized around the all-too-familiar $1,900 level after President Donald Trump and former Vice-President Joe Biden clashed in their last televised debate ahead of the elections.

XAU/USD has room to surge if Biden wins and Democrats flip the Senate – as they would approve a generous stimulus package. The second-best outcome is a win for Trump, after which he could force the GOP to approve a deal. The worst outcome is a win for Biden and the Republicans holding the Senate. 

Post-debate opinion polls are awaited.
