XAUUSD Gold prices rally

Gold prices pushed up past $1.830 on Friday, the gain comes in the wake of the softening U.S economic data amid the hawkish Federal Reserve and its continuing aggressive monetary policy. The soft economic data has raised concerns around economic growth.

Investors are turning to gold as a hedge against the growth concerns, ultimately driving the gold price up.
