XAU/USD has been extending its decline, trading at around $1,865 at the time of writing. Markets are becoming more concerned about the rapid spread of COVID-19 in Europe and growing in the US. While that could eventually lead to a larger fiscal stimulus from the US government, Congress has adjourned without taking any decisions.

The elections are also causing a high level of uncertainty and it could move gold in all directions.
