US gold prices edged up on Friday as the non-yielding metal is on track to close its best quarter since June 2020 on expectations of slower interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve after being beaten down from record highs earlier this year.

Bullion is only down about 0.5 per cent in 2022 as back-to-back rate hikes by the US central bank pushed gold to a more than two-year low in September, but prices have pared losses since.
