Spot gold showed a slight recovery from its lowest point in nearly three months as weak U.S. job data fueled fears about the economy. However, the yellow metal still faces obstacles.

The metal is under pressure as the euro languishes near a 14-month low versus the dollar on Friday, struggling to regain its footing after the European Central Bank delivered a fresh round of stimulus and promised even more if needed. A stronger greenback is a setback for dollar-denominated gold as it makes the metal more expensive for users of other currencies.

Victor Thianpiriya, an analyst at ANZ, said:

The key U.S. payrolls release is expected to be a strong print which may prompt further selling in gold late in the day in today’s session.
