Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD battle lines drawn amid hopes for stimulus – Confluence Detector

Gold has been battling the $1,900 level as markets seem worried that Congress would not opt for a new stimulus bill. The precious metal needs new funds to hit new highs. The most recent headline is encouraging – President Donald Trump is willing to raise his offer to above $1.8 trillion. 

Will House Democrats compromise from their demands for $2.2 trillion? Will Senate Republicans allow for more than their most recent offer of $500 billion? 

These are open questions. How are technicals aligned?  

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that XAUD/USD has support at $1,899, which is the convergence of the Bollinger Band one-day Middle, the Simple Moving Average 100-15m, and the BB 15min-Upper. 

Further down, support is at $1,882, which is the confluence of the previous daily low and the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month. 

Resistance is at $1,903, which is the meeting point of the previous 4h-high, the BB 1h-Upper, and the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month.

The next cap is $1,908, where the SMA 5-one-day and the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week converge.
