Crypto Markets Sluggish as US Stocks Continue to Fall as British Pound Recovers

Friday, September 30, 2022 11:42 a.m.

Friday Gathering

with Darren Parkin

You could be forgiven for thinking your screen froze while looking at cryptocurrency charts this morning. There has been little movement in any direction for all major crypto assets.

While this lack of short-term volatility is mostly welcomed by those dreaming of a future where crypto price charts don’t look like erratic heart monitors, there is something quite unsettling about the moves. laterals – something rarely seen in the last three years. .

Companies like Bitcoin and Ethereum may be waiting for a narrative before seeing meaningful price action.

Bitcoin held the line just above $19,500 this morning – just half a percent above yesterday and just 2 percent higher than last week. Ethereum showed equal lack of enthusiasm and, at $1,340, was about the same as yesterday, albeit up 3% seven-days higher.

In the United States, stocks are rapidly heading for the longest streak of quarterly declines in 14 years. Wall Street had a brutal Thursday that saw a 2.1% drop on the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq Composite took a nearly 3% hit when Bank of America gave Apple a “neutral” rating rather than ‘”to buy”.

We will see how the US reacts later today as markets open after 2.30pm UK time.

Whatever the backdrop of the story, it will be buoyed by some kind of sterling comeback. The British pound was at $1.12 against the US dollar this morning and approaching its level before last Friday’s disastrous mini-budget.

Prime Minister Liz Truss and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng met Richard Hughes – chairman of the Office for Budget Responsibility – in Downing Street. The OBR is the UK’s independent financial forecaster.

The news that even a simple meeting has taken place has already lifted the markets where many have their fingers crossed for a U-turn on some of the financial moves of the past week.

It is hoped that the Chancellor can keep HMS Sterling battered in these calmer waters long enough to sail her to port in his medium-term budget plan on November 23.

I’m sure it’s no coincidence that Kwasi Kwarteng chose this date because it’s right in the middle of the Crypto AM summit and prices, and he knows full well that some of the UK’s brightest financial minds will meet en route at the Royal Leonardo Hotel, St Paul’s.

It’s good that you already have your ticket, isn’t it?
