Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD faces wall of resistance as silver remains in focus – Confluence Detector


The frenzy in stock markets has moved from GameStop and AMC to silver prices. XAG/USD hit an eight-year high before falling down back to previous levels. In the meantime, President Joe Biden is pushing to "go big" on stimulus, but instead of boosting gold, it is causing a sell-off in bonds. In turn, higher Treasury yields make the dollar more attractive. 

How is XAU/USD positioned on the technical graphs?

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that the precious metal faces some resistance around $1,843, which is a cluster including the Bollinger Band 1h-Upper, the Simple Moving Average 10-4h and the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day. 

Another strong cap awaits at $1,850, which is the convergence of two meeting points – the SMA 100-1h, the SMA 100-4h, and the SMA 50-4h. 

Some support awaits at $1,830, which is the meeting point of last week's low and the BB 4h-Lower. 

Another soft cushion is at $1,824, which is the confluence of the Pivot Point one-week Support 1 and the PP one-day S1.
