As per the global markets, the gold rates were slightly higher in spite of a pause in traditional risk assets. Gold was supported by the jobs data in the US which was very disappointing and also the increasing cases of COVID worldwide. One of the biggest factors in weighing on gold price is the ETF outflows.
