INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - This trading week may be very bearish for gold that slumped to its lowest level this year amid Dollar appreciation.
"The depreciation of recent day’s highlights that gold remains very sensitive and negatively correlated with the Dollar," said Lukman Otunuga, Research Analyst at FXTM in Jakarta, Friday (20/07/2018).
