      Gold 2022 Outlook: Correlation with US T-bond yields to drive yellow metal.

      The Fed policymakers have entered a blackout period ahead of next weeks FOMC decision. What is moving the US Treasury yields, dollar and gold then? With the return of full markets on Tuesday, investors brace for heightened tensions between Russia and Ukraine, causing the risk premium to explode and driving the benchmark US 10-year yields to a new two-year high of $1.85%. The US rates also jumped, sending the dollar higher, on speculation of aggressive Fed rate hike in March to the tune of 50bps.

      Looking ahead, in absence of relevant US economic data due for release on Tuesday, the Fed sentiment and geopolitical tensions will continue to influence gold price. Higher yields tend to weigh on the non-interest-bearing gold price.

      Gold Price: Key levels to watch

      The Technical Confluences Detector shows that the gold price is testing the bullish commitments at $1,811, which is a powerful resistance of the SMA10 one-day and SMA100 four-hour.

      The next support awaits at the 50-DMA of $1,808, below which a dense cluster of healthy cushions align at $1,804. At that point, the SMA200 one-day coincides with the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week and pivot point one-day S3.

      The last line of defense for gold bulls is seen at $1,800, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month.

      On the flip side, the previous days low at $1,813 offers immediate resistance, followed by the intersection of the SMA5 and 10 four-hour.

      Fibonacci 23.6% one-week at $1,820 will emerge as the next significant upside barrier.

      Bulls will then challenge the previous days high at $1,823.
