Is Gold’s Historical Correlation with the Australian Dollar and Swiss Franc Predictive? Historical Price movement in Gold is quite similar to price action in the Australian Dollar, especially since late-2008. Gold is also highly correlated with the Swiss Franc, especially since mid-2013. Recently, notice that during Gold’s April-August plunge, the Swiss Franc moved sideways. Then, in mid-August, the Swiss Franc stopped basing and started moving strongly to the upside. Gold has also moved upward since mid-August, although it has lagged the Swiss Franc in aggressiveness. Now let’s look at the AUD/USD currency pair from an Elliott Wave and Hurst Cycles perspective, first on a weekly chart.
