Gold futures ended lower on Thursday as concerns surrounding U.S.-China trade talks eased and the dollar traded higher for the week.
However, the largest monthly drop in retail sales in nine years backed expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve will pause interest-rates hikes, helping to limit the loss for gold.
April gold lost $1.20, or less than 0.1%, to settle at $1,313.90 an ounce, trading about 0.4% lower for the week so far. The SPDR Gold Shares ETF was up 0.4%.
