The DXY - US Dollar Index climbed up to the highest level in 2021. There is a chance for USD to come back as a reserve currency this year. Moreover, the FED announced some news in the beginning of July that they might put the rate up at the end of this year if the economic recovery comes closer.

Last week, gold reached the Fibonacci 61.8 ($1818/oz) but could not come over. This sign shows that the bulls is not ready for an uptrend. The Fibonacci is a dynamic resistance for the bulls this time.
