FUNDAMENTALS

* U.S. gold futures for August delivery fell 0.1 percent to $1,245.10 per ounce.

* The dollar extended its losses on Friday as major central banks signalled that the era of cheap money was coming to an end in a boon to sterling, the euro and Canadian dollar, while Asian shares were hit by dismal performances of European and U.S. markets. [MKTS/GLOB]

* The world's top central bankers have delivered what seems to be a collective message this week that quantitative easing is being put back in its box and interest rates are going up - and global markets are taking note.
