Gold futures are trading higher late in the session on Friday as the U.S. Dollar turned lower against a basket of currencies and Treasury yields eased off their highs. However, the strength in the dollar all week has put the precious metal on course for its first weekly decline in three.
At 17:20 GMT, June Comex gold futures are trading $1734.30, up $7.00 or +0.41%.
The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield came off its high on Friday after a report showed the latest inflation data came in as expected.
The Core Personal Consumption Expenditure Price Index, which strips out volatile food and energy prices, rose 0.1% month over month, matching expectations from economists polled by Dow Jones. Year over year, the gauge climbed 1.4%, slightly lower than a 1.5% estimate.
