Greece is good for gold.
The precious metal surged 2 percent Thursday, as fears of a Greek default have investors running for the perceived safety of gold. But the spike didn't surprise one trader, who placed bets Wednesday that gold could rally post-Fed.
"Markets highly influenced by levels of interest rates and liquidity in the system responded sharply after Fed Chair Janet Yellen's statement [Wednesday] and then carried into overnight markets," technical analyst Todd Gordon told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Thursday.
The metal's move comes as the U.S. dollar index dropped to a one-month low. "I think the dollar should continue to fall, which will in turn boost foreign currencies, stabilize bonds and push gold higher."
