The USD rose to a three-week high on Friday as renewed trade uncertainty dampened investors’ appetite for danger. Overall, however, the sentiment is likely to hold risky assets. China and the United States continue to exercise on a trade deal that would eliminate the huge risks to the global economic outlook.

The USD is likely to stay strong as trade tensions persist. While relative interest rates are not anticipated to further boost the USD in the short term, continued trade tensions and a global economic slowdown mean that the USD will rise further slightly in 2020. Despite the fact, the USD’s trade-weighted index is near its highest point since the early 2000s.

On the other hand, preliminary data from the University of Michigan on Friday indicated that U.S. Consumer confidence grew more than expected this month and consumer trust in the economy increased slightly. Recent economic data have also been mostly better than expected. The U.S. Service sector activity index for October was higher than anticipated, while the job market remained solid and employment growth easily beat expectations last month.
