Gold and the US dollar are no longer behaving normally and it’s crucial that investors pay attention to this move, Raoul Pal and Grant Williams said during a discussion about the Brexit on Real Vision Television—a subscription financial news service they cofounded.
Gold is widely considered a hedge against the US dollar. When the dollar falls in value, gold prices often rise. However, this relationship has been breaking down.
Pal, a former macro fund manager and author of the research letter “The Global Macro Investor,” recently said that a dollar rally along with a gold rally is “a sure sign that almost everything has changed.”
