Gold (XAU/USD) is consolidating last week’s rally to two-month highs of $1784, in the wake of the persistent weakness in the US Treasury yields across the curve. Resurgent haven demand for the US dollar, amid concerns over the US President Biden’s $2.25 trillion infrastructure stimulus and covid infections, appears to be capping the upside in gold. However, gold bulls remain motivated, as China steps up bullion imports.

Gold Price Chart: Key resistance and support levels

The  Technical Confluences Detector  shows that gold remains poised for additional upside amid a lack of healthy resistance levels until $1798.

That barrier is the confluence of the pivot point one-week R1 and pivot point one-month R2.

Ahead of that resistance, the XAU bulls need to chew offers around $1784, the confluence of Friday’s high and pivot point one-day R1.  

Alternatively, powerful support is envisioned around $1774, where the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day coincides with the Bollinger Band one-day Upper.

The next significant support is aligned at $1769, the intersection of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day and 23.6% one-week.

Further south, $1760 is the level to beat for the XAU bears. At that level, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week and the previous month high converge.
