Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD could fall to $1,849 as covid fears dominate – Confluence Detector


XAU/USD has been extending its decline, trading at around $1,865 at the time of writing. Markets are becoming more concerned about the rapid spread of COVID-19 in Europe and growing in the US. While that could eventually lead to a larger fiscal stimulus from the US government, Congress has adjourned without taking any decisions.

The elections are also causing a high level of uncertainty and it could move gold in all directions.

In the meantime, how are technicals looking for XAU/USD? 

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that gold only has weak support at $1,861, which is the meeting point of the Pivot Point one-day Support 1 and the Bollinger Band 15min-Lower. 

A critical cushion awaits at $1,849, which is the convergence of the previous monthly low and the Pivot Point one-week Support 3. 

Looking up, strong resistance is at $1,872, which is the confluence of the Fibonacci 161.8% one-week, the previous 4h-low, and the PP one-week Support 2. 

The upside target, in case of a recovery, awaits at $1,886, which is a juncture of levels including the BB 1h-Upper and the PP one-week S1.
