Strong Dollar Trade Chart 1:  The price of Gold began its parabolic ascent as in the summer of 2007 moving from approximately $665 to over $1000/oz. as the DXY (U.S. dollar) gapped lower on Fed actions to combat the credit bubble.

To get Gold back to a place before where the U.S. dollar (DXY) depreciated as a direct function of credit bubble you need to go to around $650.

Look at the move in the DXY as a function of the credit bubble move.    Now that the U.S. dollar is back to strength as a result of "fundamentals" and not flight to quality - you need to see where gold was last at these levels.
