Gold steadied on Friday as the dollar eased but was still set for its first weekly loss in three as doubts over a U.S. stimulus agreement before next month`s presidential election dented demand for the metal as an inflation hedge, a Reuters report said.

Spot gold was up 0.1% at $1,909.53 per ounce by 0920 GMT but down more than 1% so far this week. U.S. gold futures edged 0.1% lower to $1,907.50, Reuters added.
