Gold prices firmed slightly and the dollar churned little changed on Friday as financial markets dug in for two potentially revealing speeches from powerful central bank heads attending the Federal Reserve-hosted conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, MarketWatch reported. Gold for December delivery rose just 80 cents, or less than 0.1%, to $1,292.90 an ounce. It has moved in a narrow range, logging both gains and losses this week, after settling at $1,296.70 on Monday—the highest since early June. The contract is on pace to finish the week up just less than 0.2%.
