After a very volatile week, traders are taking note of the extended risk-off sentiment that has dominated the markets since the new year began. The USD/JPY forex pair traded down over 1000 pips in less than two weeks and US 10 year treasury note yield is approaching all time lows. The MSCCI Global stock index is now down 20%, signaling a global bear market. In the week ahead Chinese investors will be back from the week-long Lunar New Year celebrations.
Gold benefited from the bearish sentiment, spiking $65 on Thursday alone. Demand for physical gold increased by 4% in the fourth quarter of last year year over year. Investment demand rose 15% while central banks enhanced their purchases by 25%. China maintained its position as the largest consumer of gold, followed by India.In the week ahead earnings season continues and the economic calendar kicks off with GDP data from Japan and trade data from China.
