Is the Federal Reserve going to raise interest rates? That is pushing yields on short-term bonds higher, but weighing heavily on 10-year Treasury returns – which is good for gold. XAU/USD has finally recaptured $1,800 in what looks like a meaningful move that may usher in a weekly close above that battle line.

Gold Price: Key levels to watch

The Technical Confluences Detector is showing that some resistance awaits at $1,811, which is the previous week’s high.

It is followed by $1,814, which is where the previous monthly high converges with the Bollinger Band one-day Upper. 

Further up, a strong cap awaits at $1,817, which is where the Pivot Point one-day Resistance 2 and the PP one-month R1 meet up.

Some support is at $1,805, which is the confluence of the BB 15min-Upper and the PP one-week R1. 

Further down, a critical cushion is at $1,799, which is a juncture including the Fibonacci 23.6% one month and the previous daily high.
