WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) - Gold futures fell Friday as traders booked profits from recent gains.
December gold slipped $3, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,341.70 an ounce, for a weekly gain of 2.4%.
Gold accelerated higher mid-week after the Federal Reserve kept interest rates steady.
In its statement, the Fed policy committee said 'the case for an increase in the federal funds rate has strengthened but decided, for the time being to wait for further evidence of continued progress toward its objectives.'
