Gold is up this morning $4.40, currently trading at $1,215.60 after China announced its latest threats against the US to impose tariffs on $60 billion worth of goods early this morning.  Today’s jobs report fell short of analysts’ expectations with the creation of 157,000 jobs in July (vs 193,000 predicted), however, unemployment did fall to the predicted 3.9% level.
