- Gold price improves from one-month low amid sluggish US Dollar.
- China-linked risk-aversion, Fed concerns and $1,903 resistance confluence challenges XAU/USD rebound.
- Fed Chair Powell’s speech, US data eyed for clear directions after Friday’s upbeat data renewed hawkish Fed bias.
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.
Friday’s upbeat US jobs report and ISM Services PMI renewed chatters that the Federal Reserve (Fed) has some room to increase the rates. That said, the US shooting of a Chinese balloon and canceling Beijing’s visit of Antony Blinken, US Secretary of State, weigh on the market’s risk profile. On the same line was China’s warning to not aggravate the tense situation while also terming the incident as an ‘obvious overreaction’.
The US Dollar Index (DXY) remains inactive even as the US Treasury bond yields rebound and stock futures print mild losses. The reason could be linked to the DXY bull’s indecision ahead of Tuesday’s speech from Fed Chair Jerome Powell.
Gold Price: Key levels to watch
The Technical Confluence Detector shows that the Gold price grinds higher towards the key resistance confluence comprising the Fibonacci 38.2% on one month and Pivot Point one day R1, around $1,903.
Before that, Fibonacci 61.8% on one day could challenge the Gold buyers around $1,897.
On an immediate basis, Fibonacci 23.6% on one week guards the XAU/USD upside around $1,885.
Meanwhile, Fibonacci 61.8% on one month, close to $1,870, puts a floor under the Gold price.
In a case where XAU/USD remains weak past $1,870, it’s downturn towards the previous monthly low surrounding $1,825 can’t be ruled out.
Overall, the Gold price remains bearish unless staying below $1,905.
