Is Dollar Strength Another Negative For Gold?

    For many years we have advised those who would time gold to be sure to include technical indictors on the dollar in their analysis. Gold has a long history of most often (but not always) moving opposite to the direction of the dollar.

    The dollar bottomed in early 2011, and began to rally sharply. Gold topped out at its record high of $1,900 an ounce a few months later in 2011.

    Gold managed a rally in mid-2012 when the dollar sold off in 2012.

    When the dollar resumed its rally during this past winter that pretty much coincided with gold’s big further plunge to its low in July.

    And the decline in the dollar in July pretty much coincided with gold’s latest rally attempt.


    So the dollar’s recent strength and attempt to rally is probably not a good sign for gold.
