Gold futures settled lower on Friday as some strength in the U.S. dollar put pressure on prices. The yellow metal, however, posted a gain of roughly 0.3% for the week, rebounding a bit from a loss of 5% in the previous week, which was the largest such loss in more than three years. December gold fell $2.10, or 0.2%, for the session to settle at $1,255.50 an ounce.
