Gold Prices Gain In Asia With Nonfarm Payrolls On Tap Ahead.  
Gold prices gained in Asia on Friday with the market awaiting nonfarm payroll figures for further clues on the likely path of Fed rate hikes this year.

The Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged on Wednesday but stoked expectations for a more aggressive pace on monetary policy tightening after adopting a slightly more hawkish outlook on inflation. "Inflation on a 12‑month basis is expected to move up this year and to stabilize around the Committee's 2 percent objective over the medium term." RBC said that the shift in the Fed’s language signaled a “clear upgrade” on inflation as the central bank ditched its dovish commentary on inflation.

U.S. oil prices extend gains on compliance with output cuts.  
Oil rose for a third day on Friday after a survey showed strong compliance with output cuts by OPEC and others including Russia, offsetting concerns about surging U.S. production.Production by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) rose in January from an eight-month low as higher output from Nigeria and Saudi Arabia offset a further decline in Venezuela and strong compliance with a supply reduction pact, a Reuters survey showed."It underscores the commitment of the cartel, and their Russian partners, to keep a floor under the oil price," said Greg McKenna, chief market strategist at futures brokerage AxiTrader.
