I'm watching to see what happens with the Gold/US Dollar relationship given continued sovereign debt volatility, currency volatility, potential economic slow downs, continued reflation efforts in the West and tightening in the East (China). To get a grip on this madness just watch the price action. If risk wants to come back in full force, I'm wondering how the US Dollar plays out. Will it rise on US growth expectations, Fed funds rate expectations and Euro pressures? Or will it trade inversely with the S&P as usual. I see the market was up 2.6% today. $SPY still needs to take out the 200DMA and the 20 is ready to back it up. AUD/USD is in a descending channel but trying to break out and GLD is flirting with the December high. Here are chart comparisons of $GLD, $UUP, AUD/JPY, AUD/USD, $SPY, $FXI, EUR/USD etc.
