Earlier in the week, there were fears among investors that the U.S. might default on its obligations if lawmakers failed to reach an agreement, causing some market uncertainty.


On Thursday, gold experienced a 1% gain, reaching a more than one-week high, as the dollar weakened following disappointing U.S. economic data, which led to expectations that the Federal Reserve may not proceed with an interest rate hike at its June policy meeting.
