El oro precioso se acerca a su pico de 3 meses, ya que los datos de empleo de EE. UU. Perdieron un impacto negativo en el dólar.

    May 10 (Reuters) - Gold prices on Monday hovered close to a
near three-month high hit last week after weaker-than-expected
U.S. jobs data cemented hopes that interest rates will stay low
for some time, pressuring the dollar and boosting bullion's
appeal.
       
    FUNDAMENTALS
    * Spot gold        was up 0.1% at $1,831.72 per ounce by
0131 GMT, after hitting its highest since Feb. 11 at $1,842.91
in the previous session. 
    * U.S. gold futures        were up 0.2% at $1,834.00 per
ounce.
    * The dollar index        languished near a more than
two-month low versus major peers, making gold less expensive for
other currency holders.       
    * U.S. job growth unexpectedly slowed in April, likely
curbed by shortages of workers and raw materials as rapidly
improving public health and massive government aid fuelled an
economic boom.             
    * The 266,000 jobs that U.S. firms added in April were
"nowhere near" what was expected, a Federal Reserve official
said on Friday, and added little to the "substantial further
progress" officials want to see before considering changes to
monetary policy.             
    * Lower interest rates decrease the opportunity cost of
holding non-yielding bullion
    * Stocks rose on Monday, while oil prices jumped after a
cyber attack on a U.S. pipeline operator unnerved markets.
           
    * Physical gold demand in India dived last week as shops
shuttered and people turned cautious due to surging coronavirus
infections across the world's second-largest bullion consumer.
        
    * Speculators increased their bullish positions in COMEX
gold and silver contracts in the week to May 4, the U.S.
Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said on Friday.
       
    * Palladium        rose 0.3% to $2,934.58 per ounce.
    * Silver        gained 0.8% to $27.65 per ounce, while
platinum        was up 0.6% at $1,256.47.
