The inverse correlation between gold and the US Dollar Index seemed to strengthen last week. The US dollar index took another dive down as it closed at 90.70 from 91.79 a week ago.

 

The widely followed junior mining index, the VanEck managed GDXJ, closed the weekly slightly higher at $51.62 from $49.61 a week ago. The index is now up 23.10%. The HUI Arca Gold BUGS Index, which follows the major gold miners, also closed the week higher at 292.47 from 281.22 last week. The SPDR GLD ETF inventory closed the week almost flat at 1,182.70 tonnes, or 38.02 million ounces, from 1,194.78 tonnes last week.

 

In other commodities, Silver also seemed to found a bottom and closed the week op at $25.24/oz from $22.57/oz a week ago. Copper continued to strengthen as more and more investors seem to realize there is no ‘Green New Deal’ without it and closed up at $3.52/lb from $3.41/lb a week ago.
