Global gold prices
Globally, the price of gold rose on Friday (the end of the week trading) due to the weakness of the dollar.
And gold spot transactions rose 0.2% to $ 1812.97 an ounce (one ounce) at 0641 GMT, down 0.2% during the week.
U.S. gold futures also rose 0.2% to $ 1814.80.
The dollar index is down a month, which has strengthened the attractiveness of gold to holders of other currencies.
“We see the pre-emption of individuals who want to take advantage of the NFP,” said Stephen Innes, managing partner at SBI Asset Management.
Although gold is considered a protector against inflation and monetary instability by unprecedented stimulus measures, it lowers the opportunity cost of holding a yellow metal that does not yield low interest rates.
