    I agree with Martinghoul.

    The negative correlation between "gold" and the "US Dollar" is true by definition.

    I can understand why there are references to the "price of gold" because it's rare to see it quoted in currencies other than the USD.

    However I am frequently amused by references to the direction the "US Dollar" is trading. Against what exactly? Sometimes it's quoted in terms of movements in the $DXY, sometimes it's quoted against the EUR / JPY / GBP; and sometimes it's quoted against less heavily traded currencies such as CHF, AUD, CAD, CNY.
