The gold-oil ratio identifies:
 
– Buying opportunities (for gold) when the gold-oil ratio turns up at/below 10 barrels/ounce; and
– Selling opportunities when the gold-oil ratio turns down at/above 20 barrels/ounce.
 
 
Gold-Oil ratio had peaked to 26 during mid of Februray 2009 which shows that either Gold is overbought or Oil is oversold heavily. Since then Gold has almost remains constant with a 5-10% fluctuation with Crude increasing from $35/Barrel to 75$/Barrel which leads the Gold-Crude oil ratio to 12 during mid of August 2009
 
From the charts you could see that recently Gold-Oil ratio is increasing once again Since of August from 12 to 15 along with
positive divergence as seen in slope indicator. Slope Indicator 20 and 50 day period turning Positive indicates that the uptrend in
gold crude oil is likely to continue.
 
So what does a rising Gold-Crude oil ratio means?

2)Gold Should move higher with Crude should remain constant
 
Any one of the above two factors will make the Gold-Crude oil ratio to inch up higher
