Gold weakens after positive stocks

On Friday the famous safe haven metal Gold reduced from a seven-day top while risk appetite improved due to expectations of global proposals to decrease the impact of the coronavirus spread. However, an increase in new cases stopped gold's declines. US gold futures fell 0.1% to $1,577.79. Spot gold fell 0.1% to $1,574.70 per ounce after having reached its most powerful level since Feb. 4 at $1,577.88.


Oil is stable for now

Yen is holding its position

On Friday the Japanese yen continued to hold its earnings versus the greenback while revived concerns around the coronavirus spread raised the need for safe-haven currencies and pressed the demand for riskier assets.
