'Not wise to invest in gold at current level'

Gold price in overseas markets, moved marginally lower on Friday but logged its biggest weekly gain in nearly two years on easing fears of an early end to US monetary stimulus that has boosted bullion's appeal as a hedge against inflation.

The metal has gained 7.8 percent for the week, its biggest weekly climb since October 2011 when it rose 6.2 percent.

The metal rallied after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke on Wednesday said a highly accommodative policy was needed for the foreseeable future as inflation remains low and the employment rate may be overstating the health of the labour market.

Minutes from the June Fed policy meeting also showed that about half of the bank's policymakers felt the stimulus programme should be brought to a halt by year end, but many wanted reassurance the US jobs recovery was on solid ground before any policy retreat.

Spot gold last traded down 0.2 percent at USD 1,282.06 an ounce, snapping a four-day winning streak.
