Gold retained gains from a four-day rally on Friday and was headed for its best week in nearly four months as a slump in equities and growing worries over the global economy attracted safe-haven bids for the metal.
Spot gold was holding steady at $1,224.06 an ounce by 0035 GMT, after gaining for four straight sessions.
The metal has risen 2.8 percent for the week, its best since the week ended June 20, after recovering from a 15-month-low reached earlier this week.
