Gold bulls need validation from $1,905

Gold price (XAU/USD) rebounds from monthly low, grinding higher around intraday tops surrounding $1,878 heading into Monday’s European session. In doing so, the yellow metal snaps a two-day downtrend amid the sluggish US Dollar, despite the sour sentiment and hawkish Fed sentiment.
