Gold-Forex Correlations for the previous week can be found here.

Weekly Commentary: Although gold correlations with major pairs remained weaker in the long term, there are some signs of a recovery in the overall trend in shorter term timeframes. As longer term correlations trend against riskier currencies, gold is also following more of an anti-dollar stance. Last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanake’s testimony in front of congress giving a reduced scope of asset purchases, leading to the largest drop in spot gold prices in 3 months.

The divergence of correlations between gold and major pairs may continue following the ECB’s LTRO operations, which offered EUR 529.5 billion in loans to regional banks. Expectations are for these new Euro loans to dilute the value of the common currency while help higher yielding currencies as banks shift holdings into higher yielding assets.
