  1. Dollar and Gold correlation is off

    Market and Gold correlation is on

    berry interesting
     
  2. I see, could you explain a little further? Not familiar with what the market and gold correlation means?
     
  3. traditionally if the dollar is going up against other currencies - you would see gold go down and vice versa. you could set your watch by it. this relationship is no longer true. the dollar and gold have both been strengthening. in addition - it seems like the new correlation (when the market starts going down) is for gold to go up. which makes sense - its a fear thing i suppose but this is a new correlation too....
