Gold eases as dollar firms, but set for best week since June

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Gold slipped on Friday as the dollar rose after robust U.S. economic data but the metal was on track for its biggest weekly climb since June following gains earlier in the week from safe-haven demand.

Spot gold had eased 0.2 percent to $1,224.90 an ounce by 0337 GMT. The metal has risen 2.8 percent this week, although it failed to build on strong gains that took it to a seven-week high on Wednesday.

India should allow banks to hold gold as reserves – WGC

MUMBAI/SINGAPORE, Dec 9 (Reuters) – India should allow banks
to use gold as part of their liquidity reserves, which would let
them make more use of gold inside the country and reduce the
need for imports, an industry body said on Tuesday, seeing that
as an alternative to import curbs.

The world’s second-biggest consumer of the metal should also
consider setting up an exchange for transparent gold pricing and
to streamline trade, according to a report commissioned by the
World Gold Council (WGC).
