Last minute! Gold breaks above $1,960 for the first time since April 2022

He gold price it continued to rise on Friday to reach the highest level in 11 months, surpassing $1,960/oz. XAU/USD pair rises over $40, adding to weekly gains.

Risk aversion amid the banking crisis and lower US Treasury yields continue to fuel demand for the yellow metal. Since March 9, XAU/USD is up more than $150, or 8%.

The recovery picked up speed last Friday after the Non-Farm Payrolls report and then accelerated after the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapse. The current turbulence softened expectations of central bank tightening, which pushed down government bond yields.

Gold at $2,000 now looks like an achievable short-term target. Before reaching this region, a strong resistance zone is seen around $1,980.
