The strength (or weakness) in the U.S. dollar is one of the most important drivers of price of gold. However, this is not always true and there are times when they rise or fall simultaneously. The traditional inverse relationship broke down, for instance at the turn of the 2008 and 2009 or during the two year period of 1978-1980. Why do such situations occur and what do these cases mean for gold investors?

Yesterday, official data showed that annualized Japan’s gross domestic product dropped by 1.6% in the third quarter, missing economists‘ forecast of a 2.3% growth and following a 7.3% drop in the second quarter, which puts the country in a recession. In these circumstances USD/JPY extended gains and hit a fresh multi-year high of 117.04. How high could the exchange rate go?

Although crude oil hit a fresh four-year low on Friday, the commodity rebounded sharply as upbeat U.S. data and speculations that OPEC countries may consider cutting output supported the price. As a result, light crude closed the day above $75 and invalidated the breakdown below important support lines. Is it enough to trigger a trend reversal?

Gold moved substantially higher on Friday and the volume was huge. The session was both significant and bullish, but the question remains if such show of strength can be a start of the next big move. As we promised in Friday’s second alert, we analyzed the situation thoroughly over the weekend and are reporting to you today.

Earlier today, the Labor Department reported that the initial jobless claims in the week ending November 8 increased by 12,000, missing analysts expectations for a 4,000 rise. Although these disappointing numbers pushed the greenback lower against major currencies, USD/JPY still remains in a consolidation. Is this a sign of strength?

We have recently been asked to comment on the upcoming referendum in Switzerland on gold. In particular, we were asked if this could be the turning point for the gold (and other precious metals) market that has been declining for more than 2 years now. The simple law of supply and demand dictates that when the demand for something increases, its price should go up. However, things are rarely simple in the financial markets and it’s definitely not simple in case of gold. Will this be the start of a domino effect and escalation of gold price? We invite you to read today's article with our reply.

Although crude oil moved lower after the market’s open, the commodity erased losses later in the day, hitting an intraday high of $78.04 as concerns over the situation in Libya supported the price. In this way, light crude gained 0.45% and bounced off the recent lows. Will we see a post double-bottom rally in the coming days?

There are strong reasons to claim that the relationship between the U.S. dollar and the yellow metal is negative. The appreciation of the U.S. dollar from 1980 to 1985 was accompanied by a decline in gold prices, while strong depreciation in the U.S. dollar from 1985 to 1987 was associated with an increase in yellow metal price. Similarly, a period of rise in the U.S. Dollar Index from 1988 to 2002 coincided with declining or flat prices of gold, while the depreciation in the U.S. Dollar from 2002 to 2008 was accompanied by the bull market in gold. Why does this correlation hold?

On Friday, crude oil gained 0.77% as a weaker dollar and concerns over the situation in Ukraine pushed the price higher. As a result, light crude approached the previously-broken barrier of $80. Is this a sign of strength or the last stop before new lows?
