Gold prices extend gains.
Gold rose for the fourth straight session on Wednesday, on a technically-driven rebound in thin volume.
Spot gold edged 0.2 percent higher to $ 1,141.45 an ounce by 0324 GMT. Bullion rose to a near two-week high of $1,148.98 on Tuesday.
Some experts have an opinion that after the fed conference in December, there can be some technical rebound in gold prices. Further they also believed that since gold prices fell miserable in last couple of months, there is no more such fundamental reason to push the gold price below further.
