Gold Stabilises Above $1,770 mark Ahead of U.S. JOLTS Job Openings Data, $12+ Volatility Likely; Aug 02, 2022

U.S. JOLTS Job Opening Results

Today’s U.S. Session will remain light as U.S. will release only JOLTS Job Openings data at 1400 GMT/1930 IST. It’s released late, but can impact the market because job openings are a leading indicator of overall employment. It is derived via a survey done by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to help measure job vacancies. It collects data from employers about their businesses’ employment, job openings, recruitment, hires and separations. JOLTS defines Job Openings as all positions that are open (not filled) on the last business day of the month. If the ‘Actual’ result is greater than ‘forecasted’, it is good for U.S. dollar.

Let’s see how Gold has reacted during the previous data release:
