Gold had waddled in $1,800 territory since Thursday as the dollar and yields turned higher on weekly U.S. employment claims that came in at their lowest since the COVID-19 outbreak in March 2020.
“Wall Street should see investor demand improve for safe-havens such as gold, as global tax and inflation concerns intensify,” said Ed Moya, head of U.S. research at online broker OANDA. “Gold faces short-term resistance at the $1,925 level.”

S&P closes nominally lower as investors wait for a catalyst
The S&P 500 ended a languid session slightly in the red on Monday, with investors standing by on news of a global minimum corporate tax rate, lingering inflation fears, and a lack of market-moving economic news.
The Dow closed well within negative territory, while the Nasdaq advanced. Still, the S&P and the Dow remained inside one percentage point of their record closing highs.
