Risk-on or risk-off?

Between the US Dollar and Gold, which one is supposed to be the risk-on trade and which one is the risk-off?  The S&P 500 is down more than 1% and the VIX is up more than 5%, so what would you expect to happen?  The dollar is up and gold is down.  Just goes to show that the people buying gold or currencies for one reason on Monday may not be the same people selling them on Friday.
