I noticed that the gold and dollar charts are almost a perfect mirror image of one another in any time frame. I measured the angle of ascent of gold
and the angle of descent of the dollar on the hourly charts and they are 30° and 330° respectively. Pretty neat! The falling dollar is inflationary
because we have to pay more for imported goods, and gold is seen as a classic hedge for inflation.
You can see that the inverse relation generally holds true in the bigger picture too. Dollar/Gold is one of the classic intermarket relationships;
you could almost trade the dollar off a gold chart or gold off a dollar chart and not get into trouble as long as you remembered that short
is long and long is short. ;-)
