A descriptive term for the economic conditions of one region or country spreading to other areas of the world. Booms or busts can spread easily from one country to the next because of the complex interlinking of the modern global economy. Contagion can occur quickly with a dramatic impact on the currencies in the affected countries and, by extension, on the forex market.
