Spot gold was flat at $1,727.24 per ounce, as of 1256 GMT. U.S. gold futures fell 0.4 per cent to $1,733.30.

On Wednesday, Fed officials announced the need to keep the key interest rate near zero through at least 2022, and that it would be a "long road" to recovery. Large stimulus measures and low interest rates tend to support gold, which is often considered a hedge against inflation and currency debasement.

Gold has rallied about 19 per cent since touching an over three-month low of $1,450.98 on March 16.

SPDR Gold Trust , the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, said its holdings rose 0.5 per cent to 1,135.05 tonnes on Thursday.
