Gold at 5-Mth Highs after Weak Non-farm Payrolls

07 December 2018

The bullion pushed higher, boosted by the weakening greenback and was trading 0.60% stronger during the US session, hovering at around 1,245 USD, which are levels last seen in July this summer.

Earlier today, traders watched the US labor market data. The non-farm payrolls slowed sharply in November and the US economy created only 155,000 new jobs, against expectations of 200,000, while the previous number was revised lower to 237,000. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.7%.

Moreover, wage growth stay at 3.1% year-on-year and ticked higher from 0.1% to 0.2% on the monthly basis. The US dollar declined after these numbers, while stocks and gold shot higher.

The next level for gold could be at the 200-day moving average, which is near 1,255 USD. If the bullion jumps above this level, a new long-term bullish trend could start.

Silver is trying to breach the 100-day moving average near 14.60 USD and if successful, further rise toward 14.80 USD could occur.

Traders also bought short-term bonds on Friday as yields dropped, while the longer-term yield curve remained slightly higher throughout the day.
