FBS Reveals Three Key Macro Factors Shaping Financial Markets in Q4

financewire

FBS unveils a comprehensive analysis of three pivotal macroeconomic trends for Q4 2023, highlighting the ongoing geopolitical challenges, the ripple effects of tight monetary policies, and the reshaping of the global energy market, all aimed at equipping traders with insightful foresights for navigating the financial markets amid persistent economic volatilities.

 

FBS, a leading global broker, presents an overview of the most significant macroeconomic trends traders should consider in the fourth quarter of 2023. In accordance with the brand’s mission to equip traders with tools and knowledge to conquer the financial markets, FBS financial market analysts have compiled an exhaustive list of three major Q4 challenges to the stock markets.

Having not yet recovered from the pressing geopolitical and social risks of the past two years, the global economy will continue to experience turbulence in Q4, and into 2024. Below, FBS analysts name the three most prominent tendencies that would be pushing financial market volatility in the upcoming months:

Migration policy in the EU and the US: Although the liberalization of migration policy and the attraction of cheap labor forces have historically been the hallmarks of the European and American economies, it has given rise to right-wing tendencies and increased focus on national minorities. This trend will remain stable in 2023 and 2024, potentially triggering regional disintegration. It can lead to an increased allocation of safe-haven assets like gold, making them a favorable investment target for the near future.

Prolonged tight monetary policy: High key rates, a consequence of inflation, were expected to slow down stock markets in 2023. While some stock exchanges in the EU and the US have experienced growth over 2023, the market is realizing the low possibility of stimulating monetary policy from regulators by the end of the year. Thus, in Q4, particular attention should be paid to European and American stock indices, as seasonality may provide significant support, and shares (especially on American exchanges) may rise. Nevertheless, the risks of continued decline may remain present even in 2024.

Deglobalization of the energy market: Over the past years, the largest energy supply countries, including the Gulf members and Russia, have gradually disconnected from the European energy market. At the same time, the current vector of European policy and the EU’s shift from traditional energy sources will solidify the energy market. Consequently, in Q4, oil and gas prices are expected to remain stable or experience local fluctuations, potentially affecting global markets.

FBS Analysts indicate that financial markets will be challenged by political actions toward energy supplies and the development of monetary and migration policies for the rest of 2023 and beyond. Thus, traders should focus on agile trading strategies, exploit seasonality trends, and focus on defensive assets and mid-to-low volatility stocks.
