Naeem Aslam, chief investment officer at Zaye Capital, said gold price moved sharply higher on Wednesday on the back of the US data.

He added that gold traders feel confident about future US data readings and the direction for the gold price is more than likely to be upward.

Daniel Takieddine, CEO of Mena at BDSwiss, said gold may find safe-haven support due to escalating political uncertainty in Europe.

“This comes in the wake of French President Emmanuel Macron’s decision to call snap elections, which has heightened political uncertainty in France, the eurozone's second-largest economy.”
