The second quarter of 2024 undoubtedly stands out as a pivotal period in the financial markets, as it marks a crucial juncture for the Federal Reserve’s decision on interest rates. Should the Fed opt to cut rates, significant volatility is anticipated across US stocks, gold, silver, crude oil, and global currencies. This time around, ATFX brings forth the eagerly awaited “Trader’s Magazine,” featuring insights from global market experts to address the most pressing concerns in the market. 


Martin Lam, ATFX Chief Analyst of Asia Pacific remarks,

“The market outlook for the second quarter of 2024 indicates a low risk of short-term economic recession, but global expansion may come to an end by mid-2024. It is anticipated that inflation and economic demand will decline in the second quarter of 2024, triggering investor concerns.” 

Diana Iraiqat, ATFX Market Analyst (MENA), delves into various factors influencing the US economy, starting from currency market rates, volatility in US Treasury bonds, to the state of the US banking sector. 

Gold remains a hot topic in the market, with its prices continuously hitting new highs, drawing global capital back to this asset class. Jessica Lin, ATFX (Asia Pacific) Global Market Analyst, analyzes the future trends of gold prices, starting from macroeconomic factors such as Federal Reserve monetary policy, the US presidential election, and geopolitical considerations. 

Dr. Mohamed Nabawy, ATFX MENA Market Analyst, first addresses the current hurdles facing European financial markets from a market news perspective.
