Regarding Euro, a Reuters poll is showing that rate hikes will be delayed further due to recession risks. Analysts have spoken about this a lot recently

The Eurozone just had its worst semester in five years. Real GDP growth likely came in at less than 1% annualized in the second half of 2018, the weakest since 2013. While 2018Q4 GDP results are not yet available, odds are they won’t be pretty in light of latest data from Germany’s Federal Statistics Office ─ the 1.5% growth print for 2018 points to a soft Q4 for the zone’s largest economy ─, and disruptions to France’s economic activity last quarter due to “yellow vest” protests.
