Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD remains hopeful whilst above key $1754 support – Confluence Detector

Gold (XAU/USD) is extending its corrective decline from seven-week highs of $1790 reached on Monday. The rebound in the US Treasury yields serves as a key driver for the pullback in the non-yielding gold, which offsets the impact of the sagging dollar. US President Joe Biden’s efforts to seek a deal on his $2.25 trillion infrastructure proposal revived the buying interest around the yields. The global covid vaccine optimism also collaborated with the uptick in the US rates.

Gold Price Chart: Key resistance and support levels

The Technical Confluences Detector shows that gold’s pullback is testing minor support around $1766, which is the convergence of the previous day low and Bollinger Band four-hour middle.

Defending the $1761 cushion is critical for the XAU bulls. At that point, the SMA100 one-hour coincides with the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week and the previous month high.

The next powerful cap is seen at $1754, the confluence of the pivot point one-month R1 and pivot point one-day S2.

On the flip side, recapturing the $1771 hurdle (Fibonacci 23.6% one-week) could bring the $1777 resistance back in the play. The latter is the intersection of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day and SMA10 four-hour.

Further up, the previous week high of $1784 could challenge the bullish traders, as they look to retest the multi-week tops clinched a day before.
