Gold hovered near a one-week low on Friday, pressured by firming equities, while dealers took a drop from a record high in the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund as a sign investor demand may be receding.
Holdings of New York’s SPDR Gold Trust fell 0.7 percent from the record high it had climbed to on April 9, the biggest decline this year.
The holdings fell to 1,119.43 metric tons by April 16, down 8.25 metric tons from the previous day. The trust’s holdings have fallen about 1 percent so far in April, versus a rise of roughly 4 percent in the comparable period last month.
