It Only Takes Two Charts To Explain Why Gold Is Collapsing $GLD #BusinessInsider
Gold has been falling, and as we just mentioned, it's about to enter a "death cross", which is a technical analysis term that means it's fallen hard, and people think it will fall more.

The first is real interest rates. When real interest rates are extremely low or falling, that's good for gold. And there's an intuitive reason for that. Collapsing real interest rates mean you're not getting paid much for being in currency, and the real economy probably isn't offering that much either. So, why not be in gold?
