Welcome to our weekly brief. Here you will find what is going on on the markets and what are expected events in week 17. It should help you with jumping back on track.
Fundamentals and expected events: week 17
Crypto markets: After another massive drop to a new low since the beginning of March, Bitcoin rebounded and added a nice $ 6,000. Most altcoins responded even better and showed double-digit gains. The ETH is thus almost at USD 2,500, while the BNB is approaching USD 550. The market capitalization of cryptocurrencies from yesterday’s low added more than $ 200 billion and has now jumped again to over $ 2 trillion. However, the Fear and Greed Index is at a minimum value for the last few months, at 27 points, marking fear, where it fell from the value of 74 points since last week only.
Stock and commodity markets: Financial markets are rather indecisive, awaiting the decision of the US Federal Reserve. Stock investors are beginning to worry about possible bubbles on the market, as the prices of many stocks are at historic highs, but the overall situation does not correspond to that. The S&P 500 index has gained 11.3% since the beginning of the year and even 5.2% since the beginning of April. The Dow Jones Index has added 11.2% since the beginning of the year and 3.2% since the beginning of the month. Surprisingly, gold and precious metals are not yet showing signs of recovery.
Important events: Expected events this week include meeting of the OPEC representatives, decisions on US interest rates by the Fed, as well as questions about possible tax increases in the US and other countries. In the USA, capital gains taxation is being addressed. According to the new proposal, people could pay up to 43.4%, which was also reflected in the price of Bitcoin, because in the US it is also subject to this tax.
