Gold Prices Inch Up :
Gold prices edged higher on Friday to a one-week high as the dollar weakened on receding fears of a full-blown Sino-U.S. trade war, with the yellow metal heading for its first weekly gain in four. Spot gold inched up 0.2 percent to $1,209.38, after touching its highest since Sept. 13 at $1,210.01. It has risen 1.3 percent so far this week. U.S. gold futures were up 0.3 percent at $1,214.30 an ounce. Investors are awaiting next week’s Federal Reserve meeting.
Oil Prices Eased on Friday:
Oil prices eased on Friday, pulling back after U.S. President Donald Trump urged OPEC to increase production at its meeting in Algeria, and slowing bullish momentum that had previously propelled the market toward four-year highs. Brent crude oil settled down 78 cents at $78.70 a barrel. U.S. light crude was down 32 cents to settle at $70.80 a barrel after rising nearly 2 percent on Wednesday. Global benchmark Brent has been trading just below $80 a barrel, near its highest level in almost four years, on expectations that U.S. sanctions against Iran, OPEC’s third biggest producer, will reduce global supply.
