- Gold prices return to red zone despite weaker US Treasury yields.
- Markets remain cautious ahead of Fed minutes and upcoming death cross.
- XAUUSD may resume selling below $1,800 amid light trading conditions.
Gold prices are resuming their downward momentum at the start of the new week after witnessing an impressive rebound on Friday. The US dollar is consolidating a minor rebound amid a renewed downtick in Treasury yields and falling S&P 500 futures. A mixed market mood and holiday-thin trading kept gold bulls at bay. A death cross lurking on the daily chart is giving XAUUSD sellers a much-needed boost. Attention now turns to Wednesday’s FOMC June meeting minutes for further price direction on the bright metal. In the meantime, Fed rate hike expectations and recession fears continue to dominate markets and influence silver price dynamics.

Gold Price: Key Levels to Watch
The technical confluence detector shows gold price testing the 38.2% Fibonacci one-week support at $1,806, below which the next downside target is aligned at the previous month’s low of $1,803.
The Fibonacci 23.6% one-week and Bollinger band confluence support at the one-day low of $1,798 will then come to the rescue of XAU buyers. The last line of defense for gold bulls can be seen around $1,794, the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day and the pivot point one-day convergence of S1.
On the flip side, Friday’s high of $1,812 will attract buyers, above which they need to recover the SMA5 one-day at $1,816. Fibonacci 23.6% one-month, SMA50 four-hour intersection and pivot point at $1,820 is a tough seed for bulls to break overnight R1.
