Gold (XAU/USD) is under pressure once again below $1900 after a brief recovery attempt above the latter in early trades this Monday. The optimism over US President Donald Trump’s health progress seems to fade amid looming uncertainty over the fiscal stimulus deal and upcoming election.

Despite the US Markit and ISM Services PMI reports, the focus will remain on Trump’s health updates and the resultant impact on the global markets. Technically, let’s take a look at how gold is positioned?

Gold: Key resistances and supports

The Technical Confluences Indicator shows that Gold remains trapped between key barriers, with stiff resistance seen around $1901, which is the convergence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day and Fibonacci 23.6% one-week.

The next powerful resistance is aligned at $1905, the intersection of the previous high on four-hour and Fibonacci 38.2% one-month.

Acceptance above the latter is critical to extending the recovery towards $1910, the Bollinger Band one-hour Upper.

Meanwhile, the spot is testing the support at the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week of $1891, below which the SMA10 on one-day will challenge the bears’ commitment.

Further south, $1883 will get tested, where the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month lies.

A break below the latter could trigger a quick drop towards the next downside target of $1875, the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week.
