US Dollar, Euro, Gold, Dow Forecasts & More for the Week Ahead

February 23, 2020

New York (Feb 23)  The US dollar ripped to a 3-year high before pivoting lower as supply chain disruptions, largely due to the coronavirus outbreak, pushed business activity to a 76-month low.

Amid the deterioration in sentiment and rise in recession risk, spot gold prices spiked to a 7-year high while the stock market retreated from its record.

Meanwhile, a broader selloff in risk assets like crude oil and the Australian Dollar pushed the commodity and major currency pair markedly lower.

The coronavirus outbreak and it’s corresponding impact on global GDP growth outlook will likely linger as a key theme to watch over the coming trading sessions.

Take a look at the fundamental and technical forecasts below for detailed insight on what our analysts are expecting across the global market next week.
