Gold Price Forecast: XAU/USD faces a wall of resistances around $1,812 – Confluence Detector

Gold price extended the previous week’s upbeat momentum into a fresh high on Monday, but bulls fail to sustain at higher levels amid a lack of new catalysts and thin liquidity. Gold price is easing from six-day highs, courtesy of the rebound in the US dollar across the board. However, weaker Treasury yields lend support to bulls, limiting the corrective decline in gold price. Looking ahead, gold price will remain at the mercy of year-end flows, dynamics in the dollar and the yields.

Gold Price: Key levels to watch

The Technical Confluences Detector shows that the gold price is turning south after facing a wall of resistances stacked up around $1,812.

Around that price zone, the pivot point one-day R2, Fibonacci 161.8% one-day and the previous high four-hour coincide.  

A sustained move above the latter is needed to take out the December month highs of $1,814.

Acceptance above the monthly peak will put the pivot point one-day R2 at $1,817 to test.

Alternatively, immediate support is aligned at $1,803, the confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month and SMA50 one-hour.

The next stop for gold sellers is seen at $1,800, the intersection of the SMA50 one-day, Fibonacci 38.2% one-week and SMA5 one-day.

If the selling pressure intensifies, then bears would target $1,792, the point of contact of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week, SMA10 one-day and pivot point one-week S1.

The next line of defense for XAU bulls is seen at $1,789, where the SMA100 one-day appears.

Further down, the confluence of the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month and SMA100 four-hour at $1,787 will get tested.

Here is how it looks on the tool
