TIPs Yields and Correlation to Gold

Since early 2010, the broad trade-weighted U.S. dollar index and 5-year (nominal) combine to explain 71% of inflation-adjusted daily gold price movements.

It does mean, however, that heightened volatility will continue until at least this fall. President Trump’s latest threat to impose tariffs on Europe is another sign that trade tensions, despite continued optimism on U.S.-China negotiations, are likely to persist through 2020.
