Fundamentals and expected events: week 07
- Cryptocurrencies: Cryptomarket underwent a slight correction after Bitcoin was rejected again at $ 50,000. The slump pulled down the total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies by about $ 70 billion. There is now great volatility and price fluctuations on the cryptomarket in both directions. Bitcoin is now trying to gain back the crucial threshold of $ 50,000, and the next few days it will show whether it will be able to break through and possibly maintain this threshold.
- Stock and commodity markets: European stock markets grew today, mainly due to strong economic growth in Japan in the last quarter of last year, which was better than expected. Developments in the new US fiscal policy are also having a positive effect. To some extent, reports of vaccination progress in Britain may also have had a positive effect. Overall activity was weak today with regard to holidays in the USA, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, in Asia the holidays will continue. Today, oil continued to grow, mainly due to expectations of a stronger pace of global economic recovery. Gold lost slightly, silver increased its price.
- Important events: Only announcements of macroeconomic indicators from Great Britain, the USA and France are expected this week. New Year celebrations continue in Asia.
