Gold lost earlier gains on Thursday, as the dollar recovered after the European Central Bank kept up its economic stimulus program.
The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of currencies, was up 0.1 percent at 95.06.
The European Central Bank, as expected, kept its already loose policy stance unchanged on Thursday, holding rates at record lows and promising to keep its 80 billion euro ($90.4 billion) monthly asset buying program going at least until next March.
Gold had strong gains on Friday when weak U.S. jobs data led investors to bet that a September rate rise was no longer on the cards, sending the dollar spiraling down.
"We had another couple of data points this week in the U.S. that pointed perhaps to the economy not yet being strong enough to sustain another interest rate rise in the short term," said Mitsubishi analyst Jonathan Butler.
