Dollar falls despite Trump’s stimulus objections, Brexit, data eyed ahead of Christmas

US fiscal stimulus at risk? President Donald Trump said that the relief package that Congress passed is a “disgrace” – specifically referring to checks sent to all Americans, the most symbolic part of the $900 billion package. He wants it raised from $600 to $2,000.
House Democrats support the additional cash, putting Republicans in a conundrum. Trump stayed short of stating he would veto the hard-fought bill. Uncertainty partially weighed on the market mood. However, the US dollar is retreating from the highs. Gold, which jumped on Monday after the parties struck a deal, is retreating.

Brexit: Chief EU Negotiator Michel Barnier said talks are at a “crucial point” with eight days to go until the transition period expires. He is haggling with member states and the UK on an arrangement around fish. Some speculate a deal could be reached on Wednesday, while a delay or a no-trade Brexit is also on the cards. GBP/USD trades above 1.34.

AUD/USD Forex Technical Analysis – Trader Reaction to .7551 Sets the Tone

The early price action suggests the direction of the AUD/USD on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to .7551.
Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The early price action suggests the direction of the AUD/USD on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to .7551.
Bullish Scenario
A sustained move over .7551 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move can generate enough upside momentum then we could see a retest of .7640. However, due to the low volume this week, we may not see the move.
Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under .7551 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a retest of .7489, followed by this week’s low at .7462.

Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD sellers remain hopeful below $1880 after Trump’s stimulus blow – Confluence Detector

Gold Price Chart: Key resistances and supports
The Technical Confluences Indicator shows that the XAU/USD pair is struggling to overcome a dense cluster of resistance levels stacked up around the $1867-69 region.
That area is the confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week, SMA5 four-hour and the previous high four-hour.
A firm break above the latter could expose a minor cap at $1874, which is the convergence of the SMA5 one-day and Fibonacci 61.8% one-day.
Up next, the bulls are likely to challenge the critical barrier at $1880, the intersection of the Pivot Point one-day R1, Fibonacci 23.6% one-week and Bollinger Band four-hour Middle.
To the downside, minor support awaits at $1861, where the SMA200 one-hour coincides with SMA50 four-hour and the previous low four-hour.
The SMA10 one-day at $1856 is the next relevant downside target, below which the Pivot Point one-day S1 of $1852 could be probed.
The bears need a break below the $1850 barrier to reviving the bearish bias. The Fibonacci 61.8% one-week is aligned at that level.
