Gold held above a four-month low early on Friday, spurred by a firmer euro on signs of progress in debt-hit Greece’s efforts to secure fresh funding.

Spot gold was up 0.1 percent at $1,160.68 an ounce by 0029 GMT. It had lost 0.6 percent for the week after touching $1,146.75 on Wednesday, its lowest since March 18.
