Global gold market: Gold futures prices closed slightly higher on Friday, but the price of gold still recorded a decline of 0.56% for the week.

Leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) nations are scheduled to meet in Germany on Sunday. The British government said in a statement that the ban, which will take effect in the near future, will apply to newly mined or refined gold, but will not affect previously exported Russian-produced gold.
