From Zacks: Metals are riding high on favorable demand-supply dynamics and a subdued greenback. Powershares DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund (UUP - Free Report) is off about 9.7% so far this year and has lost about 1% in the last one month (as of Sep 19, 2017). Since most commodities are priced in the greenback, a dip in the U.S. dollar bodes well for metal investing.
