Gold futures gained ground on Friday, pulling away from two-month lows as markets were jittery ahead of a highly anticipated speech by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen in Jackson Hole later in the day.
Gold prices dropped to two-month lows on Thursday, after a string of upbeat U.S. data fuelled optimism over the strength of the country's economic recovery.
