SINGAPORE Gold firmed near a two-week high on Friday and was on track to snap a three-week losing streak after the Federal Reserve decided to hold U.S. interest rates steady due to worries over the global economy.
Spot gold was flat at $1,130.70 an ounce at 0036 GMT, not far from a two-week high of $1,133.20 reached in the previous session. The metal is headed for a 2-percent weekly gain, following three weeks of losses.
