Stocks, Oil and Gold Remain Positively Correlated

 | 

The PerfChart below shows six intermarket related ETFs. The S&P 500 ETF (SPY), US Oil Fund (USO) and Gold SPDR (GLD) are positively correlated as all show gains in 2012. In an interesting twist, the Euro Currency Trust (FXE) and the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) are negatively correlated in 2012. SPY is up and FXE is down. Will this negative correlation last?
