10-Year U.S. Treasury Notes: The sustained downtrend since last September has recently been challenged as more investors flee to the “risk-free” asset.


U.S. Dollar: The greenback is at its strongest level since July 2017, which could benefit consumer spending on foreign goods.


Crude Oil: Talks of increased production to support OPEC’s outlook of strong demand has recently pushed crude lower.


Gold: Precious metals continue to fall to 2018 lows due to a strengthening U.S. dollar, and despite global economic uncertainties.
