Gold slips

Bengaluru : Gold prices were muted early Friday as the dollar extended gains from the previous session when strong U.S. inflation data and trade war concerns boosted demand for the greenback.

Spot gold was down about 0.1 percent at $1,246.11 an ounce at 0050 GMT.

Against a basket of six major currencies , the dollar was up 0.1 percent at 94.899. U.S. consumer prices recorded their largest increase in nearly 6-1/2 years in the year through June, while the monthly pace continued to suggest a steady buildup of inflation that could keep the Federal Reserve on a path of gradual interest rate increases.

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said he believes the U.S. economy remains in a "good place," with recent government tax and spending programs likely to boost gross domestic product for perhaps three years.
