Gold (XAU/USD) is set to retest daily highs at $1867, having found strong bids around $1850 levels amid a revival of hopes on a likely US fiscal stimulus.

The risk sentiment received a fresh boost alongside gold prices, as the US dollar eased across the board after reports that US President Joe Biden is expected to meet a group of Republican senators later on Monday to discuss the covid relief package. The Republicans have trimmed down the stimulus package to $600 million.

The Wall Street retail-trade frenzy and the ongoing rally in silver prices also keep the sentiment around gold underpinned. Although, the vaccine optimism in the Euro area could limit the gains in the bright metal.
