Gold holds below $1,200  on Monday as U.S. Jobs data strengthens dollar

Gold held below $1,200 per ounce on Monday, as U.S. employment data that beat estimates strengthened the dollar to a more than five-year high, denting bullion’s appeal as a hedge. And supported the case for higher borrowing costs in the world’s largest economy.

Spot gold remained stable at $ 1,192.55 an ounce, after losing 1.1 percent on Friday as data showed US employers added the largest number of workers in almost three years during November and increases wage collected.

Gold futures for February delivery were at $ 1192.10 an ounce on the Comex in New York from $ 1190.40 on December 5, when prices fell 1.4 percent.

Bullion Investors worried that the fortress of the economy might point out the Fed closer to raise interest rates and reduce gold demand, a non-interest bearing asset.

The prices of gold tend to drop in tandem with oil as the lowest energy prices is perceived to reduced inflationary pressures. Bullion is seen as a hedge against-up prices.
