Spot gold was 0.1 percent higher at $1,227.11 per ounce at 0344 GMT. Prices on Wednesday marked their strongest since Nov. 7 at $1,230.07 per ounce. US gold futures were down 0.2 percent at $1,226.1 per ounce.
The dollar has been under pressure this week as cautious comments by Fed officials about a potential global slowdown raised doubts on the pace of interest rate hikes.
Prospects of higher US interest rates are negative for dollar-priced gold as they raise the opportunity cost of holding bullion.
