Gold eased on Friday as traders booked profits after a seven-day rally and as the dollar rebounded on strong US data, but the metal still looked set to post its second straight weekly gain on expectations US interest rates will stay low for longer.

Spot gold eased 0.3 percent to $1,199.95 an ounce by 0755 GMT. The metal jumped on Thursday to $1,219.40 – its highest since March 2 – in a knee-jerk reaction to the attacks in Yemen. It later pared gains to close near $1,200.
