The US dollar extended its losses on Monday as risk appetite improved after US President Donald Trump decided to extend a March 1 deadline for additional tariffs on Chinese goods, suggesting trade negotiations between the two countries have made significant progress.
US President said the two sides “are going to have a signing summit” and that they are “getting very close,” although he cautioned it is possible that the deal “might not happen at all.” The president also announced a delay in tariffs on Chinese goods over the weekend, citing “substantial progress in trade talks with China.”
The news is a double-edged sword for gold: while bigger appetite in riskier assets supports the currencies of emerging countries whose central banks are among the biggest buyers of the metal, the outperformance of ‘riskier’ assets such as equities could prompt some outflows from safer ones such as gold and bonds.
On the data front, traders will be closely monitoring the U.S. fourth-quarter GDP, which is set to be released on Thursday. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s two-day testimony to Congress on the economic outlook and monetary policy, which begins Wednesday, is also expected to be in focus.
