Will Democrats enjoy a dual victory in Georgia? That is the question for gold traders. If President-elect Joe Biden’s party gains effective control of the Senate, he could push for an ambitious stimulus deal that would benefit the precious metal.

The latest opinion polls show a minor lead for Democrats, but anything can happen. How is XAU/USD positioned on the charts? 

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that gold is still battling the $1,947 level, which is the convergence of the Pivot Point one-month Resistance 1 and the Bollinger Band 1h-Upper. 

Looking up, some resistance awaits at $1,959, which is the meeting point of the PP one-day R1 and the BB 4h-Upper. 

Further above, the upside target is $1,972, which is where the Pivot Point one-day Resistance 2 hits the price.

Strong support awaits at $1,941, which is a dense cluster of lines including the Simple Moving Average 50-15m, the SMA 10-1h, the BB 1h-Middle, the PP one-week R3 and more. 

Further down, another line worth watching is $1,930, which is the confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day and the SMA 10-4h.
