Gold struggled to hold onto revenues because the US currency reached a nearly two-week maximum, after a measure of labor demand, American job openings, leapt 461,000 to a seasonally adjusted 6.2 million, which is the highest value since the series emerged in December 2000, as the Labor Department informed on Tuesday.
