: The U.S. dollar is back in a
bull market. After a long consolidation in the last 24 months, the
dollar broke out in November only to come back and test its
breakout level in February of this year. "more-157563">

InvestingHaven’s research team wrote in December: "nofollow" href=

. That was another spot-on call, as it appears now that
the dollar is going higher.

What does that mean to other asset classes? According to the

First, yields are rising with the dollar since last year. Now
that is a very important insight, and should be carefully examined

tend to work in the context
of a cycle. In other words, a rising dollar could be the dominant
trend and, during that trend, positively correlate with yields and

those correlations will last forever. On the contrary, they tend to
last for a period of time, typically during a risk on / risk off
cycle, as explained in ""

Note that gold has lost steam right above a major trendline,
exactly in the same month the dollar and yields successfully tested
their important support lines. That is no coincidence, and only
confirms the trends we outlined in this article.

If gold goes lower, we believe in late 2017 investors will be
presented with a great buying opportunity in gold. That moment is
simply not now, so gold investors should have a bit of patience
before accumulating their favorite asset.
