Above 50% fib level
The prices are hovering above 1118.85 (50% of Oct high-Dec low). The US stocks remain in red, while the USD index is largely resilient around 99.00 levels. Still, the yellow metal managed to clock fresh session highs and that may be due to a moderate weakness in the 2-yr treasury yield, which mimics short-term rate expectations.
At USD 1122; the metal is up 0.16% on the day. The upside is being capped as the Fed reaffirmed their plan to tighten policy gradually.
Gold Technical Levels
The immediate support is seen at 1113.15 (Jan 8 high), under which the prices could drop to 1105.08 (50-DMA). On the other hand, a break above 1131.26 (200-DMA) would open doors for a rally to 1136 (61.8% of Oct high-Dec low).
