With the US dollar weakening against major, the crude oil is taking an advantage from that, whereas yesterday it rose to record a new all time high at $119.90 per barrel, giving the shiny metal a chance to rise slightly for the second consecutive day.
The bullion traded closed it's trading around $917.47 levels after recording a high of $925.25; while today the sparkling metal opened in the early Asian session at $917.50 to record a high of $921.60 and a low of $916.80.
But the surprising thing that the gold ingots was not really boosted by the all time high oil prices, as they both move in a proportional tandem because they are dollar dominated assets. So we can notice that the shiny metal was not really being affected by proportional relationship with the black metal.
