Five factors moving the US dollar and not necessarily to the downside

For the dollar, that light at the end of the tunnel turned out to be a truck roaring at full throttle to run it down. The news of coronavirus vaccines sent stocks higher and the safe-haven dollar lower. Alongside decisive US elections and later some fiscal stimulus, there was no need to run for shelter, and the dollar suffered.

Technical Confluences Detector

Dhwani Mehta

Gold price is attempting a minor recovery above $1850, although the bulls appear to lack conviction, as the US dollar continues to hover near monthly highs. Further, a renewed uptick in the US Treasury yields also caps the bounce in gold price. Despite the limited bullish potential, gold continues to draw support from a lack of clarity on the Fed’s next policy move, as the central bank’s two-day monetary policy meeting begins later this Tuesday.

Gold: Key levels to watch

The Technical Confluences Detector shows that gold price is gathering strength before it extends Monday’s recovery towards the previous week’s low of $1870.

The next upside target for gold bulls awaits at $1880, which is the convergence of the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month, previous day’s high and Fibonacci 23.6% one-week.

Further up, the confluence of the SMA100 one-hour and Fibonacci 38.2% one-week at around $1884 could be probed.
