Valeria Bednarik, Fxstreet.com collaborator, affirms: U.S. indexes opened to the downside and remain in negative territory, while gold lost some ground and quotes around $ 1112/oz, as gloomy global sentiment still prevails, helping the dollar to make gains against most other counterparts, still a corrective movement and far from a trend change: dollar bearish tone due to general speculation that its status as the world's dominant reserve currency may be lost is not yet over, particularly after past week unemployment rate 10.2% reading.
