BC: 2024 Commodities Outlook

CIRI BC is excited to present an exclusive event featuring Bart Melek, a distinguished commodities strategist from TD Securities. Join us as Mr. Melek provides insights into the 2024 commodities market outlook and its intrinsic connection to the broader economic landscape.

Economic weaknesses in China and the Western world, compounded by the highest interest rates in over two decades, present challenges for the commodities market. Despite these pressures, mitigating factors like lean inventories and geopolitical tensions are expected to prevent a significant downturn. In addition, anticipated Federal Reserve interest rate actions, resurging Western demand and China's stimulus suggest a potential upturn in commodity prices. Mr. Melek's analysis will help us understand these dynamics at play, facilitating informed decision-making. This event is eligible for 2 CEUs.
