The price of gold climbed to the highest levels in two months on Thursday as the United States and North Korea exchanged more threats, prompting investors to buy bullion as a safe haven asset. USA -traded Nikkei futures fell 2 percent to their lowest since mid-May.
In currency markets, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 78.71 cents USA, down 0.20 of a U.S. cent.

Asian equities fell on Thursday, retreating for a third consecutive session from their nearly 10-year intraday high touched on Tuesday, as tensions between Washington and Pyongyang continued to temper risk appetite.
Gold rose to two-month highs on Friday as investors sought refuge from the uncertainty of escalating security tensions between North Korea and the US.
Trump took specific aim at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying, he had "disrespected our country greatly", and would not be "getting away with it".

CURRENCY: The dollar declined to 109.79 yen from Tuesday's 110.34 yen.

Wholesale gasoline was little changed at $1.62 a gallon, heating oil rose 2 cents to $1.65 a gallon and natural gas rose 6 cents to $2.88 per 1,000 cubic feet.
Crude futures meanwhile extended losses on fears of slowing demand and lingering concerns over global oversupply.
