Gold is accumulating around the zone $1760/oz to $1790/oz. The reason is that because the financial eyes on Wall Street have focused on crypto assets, Bitcoin. The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the US Treasury Department give the green light to the Bitcoin Exchange (which means Long/Short) and push the money poured into the ETF fund to trade Bitcoin. Although BTC is still not considered as a currency. Moreover, the largest gold ETF fund, SPDR Gold, has been withdrawn over 2.2 billion dollars since August. By estimate, more than 5.5 billion dollars have been withdrawn over the world from the 3rd quarter by other funds.
The DXY - US Dollar Index fell down 0.8 point (1.02%) because the FED has not released any significant signal that the QE will slow down any sooner and the interest rate will climb up.

This week, there will be 2 speeches from other Chairman of the FED that affect the US economy.
