May 24, 2024

Marc Chandler, Managing Partner at Bannockburn Global Forex and Editor of the Marc to Market website joins us to recap the Fed minutes, currency market moves and the commodities pullback this week.


We start by diving deeper into the recent Fed minutes, analyzing the hawkish tone and market expectations regarding rate cuts. We discuss how rate cut expectations impact the U.S. equity markets, and the balance between market moves and economic resilience. Additionally, we discuss the influence of central banks in the EU, Japan, and Great Britain on currency trends and the importance of U.S. interest rates in driving market dynamics.


Commodities are up next, including insights on gold, oil, and copper. We tie in economic trends in China and the ongoing U.S.-China relations. Lastly, we reflect on the current state of the U.S. markets and the potential implications of the evolving global economic landscape.
