Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD Eyes $1874 And $1870 As Next Downside Targets – Confluence Detector

Gold price is falling from just below the $1900 area this Monday, kicking off the week on a bearish note. Resurgent US dollar demand amid a rebound in the Treasury yields, courtesy of US Secretary Janet Yellen’s optimism over the economy, weighs on gold’s appeal. Yellen said that higher interest rates would be a ‘plus’ for the Fed. Investors shrugged off dismal US NFP jobs data, as Yellen revived taper talks. Further, a tussle between the White House and Republicans over President Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion infrastructure spending bill also adds to the downward pressure on the gold price.

Looking ahead, the broader market sentiment and dynamics in the yields would continue to play out amid a lack of relevant US economic news. The US CPI report due on Thursday will be the main event to watch for fresh trading opportunities in gold price.

Gold Price: Key levels to watch

The Technical Confluences Detector shows that gold price is approaching a dense cluster of support levels stacked up around $1880.

At that point, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month, Fibonacci 23.6% one-week and Fibonacci 38.2% one-day coincide.

If that cap gives way, a drop towards the Bollinger Band one-day Middle at $1874 cannot be ruled out.

Further south, the sellers will then test the confluence of the Fibonacci 23.6% one-week and Fibonacci 61.8% one-day at $1871.

On the flip side, gold bulls need to scale the $1888-$1890 supply zone on a sustained basis. That area is the convergence of the SMA5 four-hour, SMA10 one-hour and previous four-hour.

The Fibonacci 61.8% one-week at $1893 could test the bullish commitments.

The next stop for gold bulls is seen at $1896, where the previous day high, SMA50 four-hour and SMA200 one-hour meet.
