All of these have prevented the $US falling any further for now and into the immediate future.
So, the direct conclusion to draw is that gold is falling because the chaos that marked US fiscal and monetary policy since the GFC is ebbing. And that is the case with the US budget coming slowly under control and, in a world of mad central bankers, monetary policy suddenly seeming much less radical than it did.
The gold correction is thus good news and bad. It heralds the return of King Dollar and is good for global inflation as all commodities deflate relative to this benchmark. But it also means the US is once again saddled with its exorbitant privilege and that that will slow its recovery.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not pretending to have all of the answers here. Gold defies such an approach. Ironically for the true believers in gold's intrinsic value, it is the ultimate social artifact, more reliant than any fiat currency for its value on the degree of faith or skepticism in policy settings.
Some are claiming that this is now a once in a 2 million year 'Golden Swan' event which is just a bit rich. Nonetheless, it is dramatic.
But what's it saying? To understand we need know what makes gold go up in the first place. There are various marginal reasons sovereign instability, inflation, jewellery demand but one towers above all else, the value and stability of the dominant reserve currency, the US dollar.

For Australia, gold's tumble means several things. The good news is that the relative stabilisation in US policy means that the Australian dollar will struggle to rise from here. The bad news is that gold is our third biggest export, bigger even than thermal coal, so the terms of trade is taking another hit largish hit:
The gold crash has really got going now and brings to mind an old truth in commodity investing: that prices ride the escalator up but catch the lift down.
