Spot gold rose 0.54% at USD 1,274.92 an ounce by 4 pm ET. US December gold futures settled up 0.31% at USD 1,277.20. The dollar index fell from a two and a half month high.
Earlier, bullion fell to a two-month low at USD 1,260.16 an ounce on an upbeat reading of the US unemployment rate and wage growth last month that supported expectations for a further US interest rate hike in December. This pushed the dollar and Treasury yields higher.
