Asian shares were steady on Friday and were on track for a solid advance this week, while oil and the dollar held onto gains in the wake of strong US corporate earnings.

US crude inched down 0.1 percent to USD 53.71 a barrel, after Thursday's near 2 percent surge. It is poised for a 2.5 percent weekly increase.

Spot gold fell 0.1 percent to USD 1,187.50 an ounce, heading for a 1.8 percent loss for the week, its first weekly decline in five, and its worst weekly performance this year.
