Gold futures rallied on Thursday after the recent session trading to just below a maximum of one week as recent comments by Federal Reserve President Janet Yellen, drove investors to roll back expectations of a rate rise in the United States.

Investors reduced expectations of a rate hike mid-year after Yellen said that if the economy continues to improve as hopes that the Fed changed its orientation forward, but emphasized that a change in your language does not should be read as an indication that a rate hike would automatically be moved within a series of meetings.

The Department of Labor said US the number of individuals presenting for initial jobless benefits increased by 31,000 last week to 313,000 from the previous week’s total of 282,000. Analysts had expected initial unemployment claims will increase by 8000 to 290,000 last week.

A separate report showed the total number of US durable goods orders, which include transportation items, rose 2.8% last month, beyond expectations by an increase of 1.7%.

Core orders for durable goods, excluding volatile shuttle, 0.3% in January, disappointing expectations for a gain of 0.5% increased.
