And gold prices had fallen to their lowest level in more than two and a half months to approach $ 1,750 an ounce before compensating their losses at the end of last week, as the selling was driven by the strength of the US dollar, however, the precious metal found support later due to renewed fears of the Corona virus.

Data from the US Department of Labor released on Friday showed that the country's economy added 850 thousand jobs to the non-agricultural sectors last June, and this is the fastest pace of job growth in the US economy in ten months, but the unemployment rate rose to 5.9% from 5.8% during the month, and the unemployment rate rose to 5.9% from 5.8% during the month. It is still much higher than pre-pandemic levels, which put pressure on gold and halted its rally.
