Kristian Rouz - A mysterious operation on the global gold market ahead of US Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's speech sent gold prices lower, with roughly two million ounces being traded within one minute.

Indeed, Yellen's speech left the impression that the Fed will abstain from an interest rate hike in September - always a good sign for stock market speculators. This event was the reason for the weakening of the US currency. She announced the achievement of the dual goals of inflation and gave a few soft comments on the future policy of the fed.
