Yuan Gold Fix

Gold prices in Shanghai are $11 higher than New York’s close and $12 higher than London’s opening [allowing for the difference in the quality of gold priced in the different markets].

The dollar has started to rise again, climbing over the 101 dollar index level. Will it go higher and move into a bull market again? More importantly, will it cause gold to fall further? To us we see it building a base at $1,210 at the moment, which, if it holds is positive for gold!
