The US economy stumbles as the value of the dollar declines; Gold recovers


The market reported on Friday that the US economy is stumbling as the dollar retreats, which has allowed gold and other global currencies to improve in value. It has also been a hectic week for many retail sales figures.

In a sudden turn of events, the greenback began to retreat from its recent high. The US economy started posting positive numbers after the Treasury Department announced that the Federal Reserve was doing well. Experts are speculating on this low a day after the dollar’s value rose. Many believe it is because the Feds have refused to infuse the market with the necessary stimulus. Although the Fed expressed concern about the state of the US economy, it did not give any new stimulus to the market, which resulted in a significant drop in demand and stocks of the US dollar.

After the Fed spoke out against any new stimulus, the value of gold rose to $ 1,950. However, the commercial value of gold is still lower than it is used to. Experts believe that the value of this precious metal will fluctuate depending on whether or not there is another round of recovery in the US economy.

Congress is still deliberating on fiscal stimulus plans. Although all parties and the White House believe the country needs another round of stimulus, the delay is because the two sides cannot agree on a plan. However, a bipartisan caucus has proposed a bipartisan stimulus package for the US economy of $ 1.5 trillion. Currently, it is not known whether this bipartisan stimulus package will be approved or not.
