Spot gold reached as high as $1,298.42 an ounce on Friday as investors rush to invest in a “safe-haven” asset before prices eased off the multi-month peak. Gold fell slightly to $1,291.68, a drop of 0.2 %, at 13:00 GMT but is still on track for a third straight weekly rise. The precious metal has rallied this week as global markets erupted in turmoil, with stocks worldwide in the red over the last couple of days as fears of an economic slowdown intensify. Anxieties over the state of worldwide finances were exacerbated after Apple issued a rare revenue warning, blaming slowing sales in China where the economy has been dented by an ongoing trade war with the United States.
