Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD faces uphill battle and could fall to $1,906 – Confluence Detector

Gold remains on the back foot as uncertainty remains prevalent ahead of the all-important policy review from the central bank. Jerome Powell, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, is set to deliver a speech that may open the floodgates to more monetary stimulus – potentially pushing the precious metal higher.

However, investors are yet to be convinced that additional money printing is on its way, reducing their bets on XAU/USD. 

How is gold positioned on the charts?

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that XAU/USD is facing fierce resistance at around $1,933, which is the convergence of the Bollinger Band 15min-Upper, the Simple Moving Average 5-4h, the SMA 100-15m, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month, and more. 

Further above, gold is capped at $1,936, which is the meeting point of the previous 4h-high and the Fibonacci 23.6% one-week. 

Looking down, support awaits at $1,906, which is where the Pivot Point one-day Support 1 and the previous weekly low converge.

Another cushion is at $1,898, which is the confluence of the PP one-day S2 and the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month.
