Gold prices edged higher on Monday, as weaker-than-expected U.S. jobs data re-ignited concerns over a recovery in the world’s largest economy, pressuring the dollar and boosting bullion’s appeal.
Spot gold rose 0.1% to $1,813.99 per ounce by 0040 GMT. U.S. gold futures gained 0.2% to $1,816.50.
The dollar fell from an over two-month peak on Friday after a U.S. jobs report indicated a slow recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. A weaker dollar makes gold cheaper for holders of other currencies. [USD/]
