Former President Donald Trump’s trial is over and while political commentators delve into the implications, for markets it only means that the Senate’s agenda is now focused on one thing – stimulus. President Joe Biden is set to push through a covid relief bill worth as much as $1.9 trillion. Will that push gold higher or rather jolt US bond yields to fresh highs and weigh on the precious metal? 

In any case, XAU/USD is preparing for a new battle. Here are the levels to watch. 

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that gold is capped at around $1,821, which is the convergence of the Simple Moving Average 10-1h, the Bollinger Band 15min-Middle, the SMA 100-15m, the BB 1h-Middle, and many additional lines. 

Further above, the upside target is $1,842, which is a juncture of lines including the BB one-day Middle and the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month. 

Some support awaits at $1,804, which is the confluence of the previous month’s low and the BB one-day Lower. 

XAU/USD may target $1,780, which is the meeting point of the Fibonacci 161.8% one-week and the PP one-month S1.
