Important News and Triggers

hedge once again. Todays focus is on US Nonfarm payroll data and unemployment rate, which is set tone for gold markets next week.
Demand & Supply – Large speculators had been trimming longs and increasing short exposure to gold futures these past weeks. And now is likely a time they’ll
look to reverse those positions.
Economic Data – The Federal Reserve increased interest rates by 50-basis points as expected. The current level of Fed Funds rates is now 75-100 basis points.
