Gold falls to eight-week low after NFP

View Comments

Gold dropped to $1695 after the non-farm payrolls report.

The US dollar was broadly stronger following the release and that’s weighing on commodities. The Fed is also growing less likely to increase QE3 or expand it to Treasuries.

The lows match the 50% retracement of the gain since mid-August and the early-September lows.

  2. Is it possible due to the fact that Unemployment rate stays flat (unchanged) 7.9% gold to reverse and change to bullish?

  3. “The Fed is also growing less likely to increase QE3 or expand it to Treasuries.”. Is this a Fed member comment or your own “opinion”?

  4. I wonder what should happen that these market would start moving again. This ridiculous, then after NFP report eru/usd managed to squeeze less than 50 pips (!) movement. And this is happening in the world where central banks have their printing presses at a full throtle.for a couple of years now. Where do money go then???

  5. That’s my own comment.
