US Dollar Index Monthly Chart
A strong dollar is not supportive for the metals.

Since our major buy signal on USD in 2011, metal prices have fallen significantly and until this trend is reversed from a long term perspective, I can only suggest on trading the gold sector but not holding for the long term.

US Dollar Index Weekly Chart

This long term chart shows clearly the inverse relationship between dollar and precious metals, and we must respect that despite many fundamental and sentimental reasons why some of us have fallen in love with the metals in recent years.

Long term - on major sell signal since Mar 2012.
Short term - on sell signals.
Gold sector cycle - down as of 8/8
COT data suggests a top is in for the metals.
