A brief analysis of the fundamentals:
On Friday (September 2), the United States announced on Friday that non-farm payrolls in August were 315,000, slightly higher than the expected 300,000, but the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 3.7%. Affected by the data, the U.S. dollar index fluctuated and declined during the session, and spot gold rebounded to an intraday high of $1,715 per ounce. At a time when the Fed is taking inflation control as its priority, a slight increase in the unemployment rate will not interrupt the Fed's continued path of substantial interest rate hikes. Or it means that the decline in the price of gold may be difficult to change.
