Gold and Silver prices on international market:
As per Reuters, gold prices edged higher on Friday but were headed for a fourth straight weekly fall as investors stayed away from making big bets ahead of U.S. inflation data that could prompt the Federal Reserve to scale back its bond purchases at a faster pace.
Spot gold rose 0.2 per cent to $1,778.13 per ounce by 0352 GMT. U.S. gold futures gained 0.2 per cent to $1,779.30.
Bullion prices have fallen 0.4 per cent so far in the week as investors exercised caution before the U.S. Consumer Price Index report, due at 1330 GMT, and the Fed policy meeting next week.
Investors also took stock of U.S. jobless claims dropping to their lowest in more than 52 years last week as labour market conditions continued to tighten amid an acute shortage of workers.
