Globally, gold eased as some investors booked profits after prices hit a two-week high in the last session amid hopes for further stimulus to curb the coronavirus' economic toll, but the metal was headed for its best weekly gain in more than 11 years.

Spot gold slipped 0.5 per cent to $1,621.07 per ounce by 0035 GMT, having risen to its highest since March 12 on Thursday.

The metal was up 8.2 per cent for the week, its biggest since December 2008, on weak US unemployment data and the Federal Reserve's unprecedented economic stimulus measures.

US gold futures fell 0.8 per cent to $1,638.80.

China's net gold imports via Hong Kong fell 51.1 per cent in February, compared with the previous month, as the epidemic stalled activity in the country, data showed.

SPDR Gold Trust, the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, said its holdings rose 0.46 per cent to 953.54 tonnes on Thursday.

Palladium gained 0.2 per cent to $2,335.33 per ounce, platinum slipped 0.5 per cent to $732.21, while silver eased 0.2 per cent to $14.35.
