U.S. gold futures for December delivery rose 0.8 percent to $1,272.00 per ounce.

On the currency markets, the pound was down to a three-week low against the U.S. dollar but mainly due to earlier disappointing output and trade data.

Stocks around the world slid again Friday following an escalation of threats between the USA and North Korea, while investors contemplated an array of macroeconomic uncertainties.

The stock market jitters came as North Korea outlined plans to launch missiles aimed at the waters off the coast of the US Pacific territory of Guam.

"What the President is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong-un can understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language", Tillerson said.

USA equities had been on track for a 10th-straight record session Tuesday and the dollar was initially up after the JOLTS survey showed job openings hit a record in the U.S. last month.

The FTSE 100 fell by more than 100 points as global investors continued to act on North Korea-related jitters.

USA equities steepened their losses late in the session after President Donald Trump said his earlier warnings to North Korea may not have been tough enough.

The NYT also reports that a person who spoke with Trump before his address said that he was in a "bellicose mood".

'Traders are on red alert as the mention of war has sent them running for cover.

The CBOE Volatility Index - a measure of investors' expectations for swings in the S&P 500 over the next 30 days - surged 44% to 16.04 Thursday - its highest level since U.S. Election Day.

Earlier, Pyongyang said it was ready to give Washington a "severe lesson" with its strategic nuclear force in response to any USA military action.

The FTSE 100 firm announced in March a year ago that it would run its US-based asset management operation, its UK-based wealth unit, an emerging markets division and Nedbank in South Africa as separate businesses.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index lost 1.06 percent and MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe shed 0.17 percent. The big economic news of the day will come after Asian markets have moved on to the weekend, however, with the release of US consumer price index inflation data for July.

Weakness in U.S. Treasury yields may also be supporting the yen, some analysts said.

But the safe-haven Japanese yen strengthened 0.33 percent versus the greenback at 110.39 per dollar.

Spot gold rose 0.5 percent to $1,266.20 per ounce at 0054 GMT. At this level, the benchmark is on track for its lowest close since late June, according to FactSet data.

For later in the day, USA consumer price data for July are expected at 1330 BST. Futures pointed to further declines on Wall Street, with S&P 500 futures down 0.3 percent at 2,465.70 and Dow futures falling 0.2 percent to 21,986.00.

The department store chain reported earnings of $110 million, or 65 cents a share.

U.S. dairy group Dean Foods dropped nearly 21 percent as its quarterly earnings fell, and the stock received a downgrade from JPMorgan.
