In the US market, gold was flat, due to rise in risk sentiment after US President Donald Trump's latest comments rekindled hopes of a trade deal with China, but dollar's weakness kept the bullion on track for a weekly rise.

Spot gold was flat at $1,475.51 per ounce by 0120 GMT, US gold futures were down 0.2 per cent to $1,480.80, reported Reuters. Bullion was still on track for a weekly gain of 0.8 per cent, after it hit a one month high of $1,484 earlier this week.

According to technical charts, spot gold may break support at $1,471 per ounce and fall towards $1,455, as suggested by its wave pattern and a Fibonacci projection analysis, said a Reuters analyst.

The support is provided by the 61.8 per cent projection level of an upward wave 'c' from $1,450.30. This wave completed around its 100 per cent projection level of $1,484.

On the daily chart, gold faces a resistance at $1,488, the 23.6 per ecnt retracement of the uptrend from $1,265.90 to $1,557. The resistance is strengthened by another one established by a falling channel.

It could be much easier for the metal to fall towards $1,446, than to break above $1,488.
