Another Monday and the question on everyone’s mind is, has crypto finally turned a corner? Bitcoin’s been trading sideways, and many alts have seen some slow but steady increases. Remains to be seen, of course, but fears of regulation in the U.S. diminished after that mostly positive and positively intelligent discussion from the heads of the SEC and the CTFC that occurred last week. And there’s speculation that the big crypto downturn was actually the canary in the coalmine for larger financial downturn in bonds and stocks. Is there more carnage to come? Will we see a grizzly in the coming weeks?
As always, keep reading and stay tuned. 2018 is only getting started.
