US gold rallied 1 per cent on Friday, recouping some losses from earlier this week, on renewed worries about the stability of the banking sector, while traders slashed bets for another interest rate hike following remarks from the Federal Reserve chairman.

Spot gold gained 1.2 per cent to $1,981.79 per ounce by 12:30 p.m. ET (1830 GMT). US gold futures settled 1.1 per cent higher at $1,981.60.

"Gold is up more on Yellen than a cautious Powell which still suggests that June will be a 'skip' meeting unless data over the next few weeks is especially troublesome," Tai Wong, a New York-based independent metals trader, said.

Gold was on course for its worst week since February, down about 1.5 per cent so far, after a series of robust economic data.

"This is the week that gold really got crushed because there's been a steady flow of that debt ceiling optimism and, in addition to that, some hawkish pushback from the Fed," said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at OANDA.
