- Cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin attacks a new ATH after information leaked to the public that Elon Musk’s Tesla bought bitcoins for US $ 1.5 billion. The current price of Bitcoin is strengthening sharply and is now at around USD 43,000. Other altcoins are also growing, almost the entire crypto market is now in green. In addition, Musk and other celebrities once again pushed DOGE meme coin to new highs, now it is in the top 10 cryptocurrencies.
- Stock and commodity markets: Tesla’s announcement is also great news for gold investors. The electric car manufacturer said it had updated its investment policy to allow not only investment in digital assets, but also in gold bars and exchange traded funds (ETFs). It can therefore be expected that the prices of gold metal will also go up.
Global stock markets also mostly grew, with Asian stock indices approaching record highs. US stock indices are heading for higher openings and record highs when the New York daily session begins. Hopes for a slowdown of the coronavirus pandemic due to continued vaccination and expectations of President Biden’s $ 1.9 trillion rescue package add to optimism. US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said on Sunday that the US economy could reach full employment by 2022 if Congress adopts the proposed stimulus package.
- Important events: The US Fed and the British Central Bank are expected to announce results of their meetinga again, and the Chinese New Year will begin in Asia at the end of the week, leading to a fall in cryptocurrency prices in the past. Now, some analysts are beginning to say that even this event will not have a significant effect on the cryptocurrency prices.
