Gold held steady on Monday after climbing as much as over 1 per cent in the previous session as a weaker-than-expected US jobs data trimmed expectations of a Federal Reserve rate hike in September. US employment growth slowed more than expected in August after two straight months of robust gains and wages were tepid.

Spot gold was mostly unchanged at $1,324.16 per ounce by 0347 GMT. The metal rose 0.9 per cent to $1,324.65 on Friday.US gold futures were up slightly at $1,327.90."Gold should continue to see interest support following Friday's jobs data as the chances of an interest rate rise in September pull back," MKS PAMP Group precious metals trader Sam Laughlin said in a note.
