Gold surged by about $50 over last week, driven by tepid US manufacturing and construction spending and a reduction in price pressures.

The precious metal could easily push above the record highs, said Phillip Streible, chief market strategist at Blue Line Futures in Chicago.

"(Fed Chair Jerome) Powell speaks two times this week, and he could come out and be a bit more dovish... we could see a miss on the (US) jobs data on Friday," all factors that will help gold, Streible added.

Markets are currently pricing at a 71 percent chance of a Fed rate cut in June, according to the CME Fed Watch Tool.
