    Gold held steady on Friday en route to its best week in more than three months, driven by an escalation in U.S.-China tensions, with investors also looking for a hedge against possible inflation as hopes for more stimulus measures grow.

    China said the U.S. move to close its Houston consulate this week had “severely harmed” relations and warned it “must” retaliate, without providing details of what it would do.

    Gold is often used as a safe store of value during times of political and financial uncertainty.
