XAU/USD upside opens up toward $1,775

- Gold price is rising for the third straight day on Thursday, having recaptured $1,750.

- Dovish Fed minutes and weak US data weigh on the US Dollar alongside US Treasury yields.

- price faces an uphill battle on the upside, with eyes on the key $1,775 resistance.

Gold price is trading at the best levels seen so far this week, as bulls find fresh impetus after having recaptured the $1,750 psychological mark. The main reason behind the renewed upside in the bright metal is the extended US Dollar weakness in tandem with the US Treasury bond yields. Dovish US Federal Reserve minutes and weak United States PMIs and Jobless Claims data triggered a fresh sell-off in the US Dollar, as the US Tresaury yields tumbled across the curve amid increased expectations of smaller Fed rate hikes in the months ahead. The greenback ignored the Chinese coronavirus-led concerns, which kept the risk rally on the global stocks largely capped. Gold price could preserve recent gains amid Thanksgiving Day-driven thin market conditions, as the bias for the US Dollar remains to the downside.

Gold Price: Key levels to watch

The Technical Confluence Detector shows that the gold price is struggling to take out a strong resistance at around $1,759, where the SMA10 one-day, Fibonacci 23.6% one-week and SMA 50 four-hour coincide.

The next critical resistance is envisioned at $1,762, the intersection of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week and pivot point one-day R1.

Acceptance above the latter will trigger a fresh rally toward the confluence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week and pivot point one-month R2 at $1,772.

Further up, the pivot point one-day R2 and one-week R1 at $1,775 will be put to test.

On the flip side, the immediate support is pegged at the previous day’s high of $1,753, below which the previous week’s low at $1,748 will come into play.  

The line in the sand for Gold buyers is the $1,742 demand area, which is the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day.
