As the dollar has been breaking out, the price of gold has been breaking down. Today, gold dipped below its 200-day moving average (DMA) today for the first time since January 2009. If gold closes below its 200-DMA it will mark the end of the longest ever streak (732 trading days) of consecutive closes above its 200-DMA. Over the course of that streak, gold rallied nearly 125% to its highs earlier this year, and has since declined 16%. Even after the recent decline, though, gold is still up 88% since the last time it closed below its 200-DMA.
