Gold dipped on Friday and held on track for its first weekly decline in five as easing tensions in the Middle East rekindled risk appetite.
Spot gold was down 0.15% at $1,550.22 per ounce, having fallen as much as 1% on Thursday to its lowest since Jan. 3 at $1,539.78. U.S. gold futures were 0.3% lower at $1,551.20 per ounce.
World stocks were on track for new highs, driven by the thaw in U.S.-Iran tensions. Further boosting risk sentiment, the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday passed a resolution to stop U.S. President Donald Trump from further military action against Iran.
