Dollar Slides After Goldman Capitulates, Pulls March Rate Hike Forecast

So what if any impact did Goldman's rate call change have on the market?

In other words, after a violent repricing in the past month - largely thanks to Powell's recent comments and continued disappointing economic data out of the US - the market now sees the ECB as more hawkish than the Fed in 2019.
