Gold prices remain steady below $1,228 as Japanese banks remained closed in the observance of Thanksgiving. Moreover, the dollar remains slightly weaker lingering uncertainties over the pace of rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve, putting the metal on course for a second straight weekly gain.

GOLD – XAU/USD – Technical Outlook

On Thursday, we spoke about ascending triangle pattern – gold is still trading that pattern and it’s extending a solid resistance near $1,228. Due to the lack of top-tier news, the precious metal isn’t moving a lot and facing a hard time to break $1,228 but it’s just a matter of time when a big news announcement comes.

Anyhow, the bullish breakout is likely to extend gold’s rally until $1,234. Whereas, below this, gold is likely to remain bearish with a support at $1,221.
