Gold prices inched up on Friday, after falling more-than 1% in the previous session, as rising concerns over U.S.-China relations weighed on risk appetite, although the metal still looked to be headed for a weekly loss.
Spot gold climbed 0.1% to $1,727.43 per ounce by 00:29 GMT, but was down about 0.8% for the week so far. U.S. gold futures rose 0.3% to $1,727.00.
Asian shares were set to fall, tracking global equities that dropped after Beijing's plan to impose a new national security legislation on Hong Kong drew a warning from U.S. President Donald Trump.
