Support for gold vanished as a solid Greenback weighed on investor appetite. The U.S. dollar is supported by strong U.S. economic data and outlook for higher interest rates. Higher U.S. rates tend to support the greenback, in which the metal is priced. Most recent figures suggest continued vulnerability for gold amid a stronger buck.

While stock markets are under pressure from the latest exchange of trade warnings between Beijing and Washington. China pledged on Thursday to counter if the United States moved on a threat to boost tariffs on the Asian nation’s exports. Consequently, hiking tariff worries in financial markets that the trade war between the world’s two largest economies would intensify.

Anyhow, the investor focus is shifted to the U.S. labor market figures which are due to be released during the New York session today. Watch out the fresh trading levels…
