    April 5 (Reuters) - Gold prices eased on Monday as U.S.
Treasury yields rose and the dollar strengthened after
better-than-expected jobs data from the world's top economy
fuelled optimism over a swift recovery.
    Spot gold        was down 0.1% to $1,726.36 per ounce by
0733 GMT. Gold futures        were flat at $11,762.40 per ounce.
    "Strong payroll data has boosted the dollar and yields and
is weighing on gold prices. I think gold's primary trend is
bearish," said DailyFX strategist Margaret Yang.
    "Global economic growth is definitely taking a positive
turn, however, it is uneven. Growth in the U.S. is particularly
strong, but parts of the EU are having a challenging time with
the third wave of virus."
    The U.S. economy created the most jobs in seven months in
March as more Americans got vaccinated and the government doled
out additional pandemic relief money.             
    That lifted global stock prices to a more than one-month
high on Monday, while benchmark U.S. Treasury yields held near a
14-month peak.                  
    The dollar        rose 0.1% against its rivals ahead of U.S.
services sector data, making gold more expensive for holders of
other currencies.       
    U.S. President Joe Biden's announcement of a long-awaited $2
trillion-plus job plan last week has raised some concerns over
inflation.             
    Some investors view gold as a hedge against inflation, but
higher Treasury yields, which translate into a higher
opportunity cost for holding bullion, have challenged that
status.
    "It is becoming clear to me that gold's sensitivity is not
to future inflation expectations, but rather, to moves in U.S.
bond yields, notably the 10-year tenor," OANDA senior market
analyst Jeffrey Halley said in a note.
    Elsewhere, silver        fell 0.8% to $24.77 per ounce and
palladium        was down 1.1% at $2,637.64.
    Platinum        dipped 0.5% to $1,203.49 per ounce after
hitting its highest since March 18 earlier in the session at
$1,218.
