Is it Risk-on or Risk-off?

Gold is up on risk-off flows but stocks were up on risk-on flows. It is a 'go figure' moment for sure with an escalating Covid situation in the US. The US$ index has printed a third consecutive indecision candle which kind of sums up things appropriately! The GBP/USD Descending Wedge is shaping up nicely so this might be one set up worth watching!
