Gold prices edged up after marking their largest one-day percentage gain in over a year on Friday. Most of the bullish trend came in response to the U.S. dollar retracement on remarks from the Federal Reserve chair in support of a gradual approach to raising rates.

The Fed chair Jerome Powell supported the U.S. central bank’s intentions to hike interest rates despite President Donald Trump’s criticism of higher borrowing costs.

As you can see on the 4 – hour chart, gold has entered the overbought zone. The RSI is holding near 90, signaling a strong bullish trend in gold.

The immediate resistance prevails at $1,207 and the bullish breakout can lead gold prices towards $1,214. Whereas, gold can stay bearish below $1,207 until $1,199. I will be looking to take a buying position above $1,208 to target $1,212.
