Analysis of market assessments:
- Traders’ self-confidence is now evenly balanced, with the outbreak of the Indian coronavirus offsetting progress in Europe, where borders may soon open.
- This has left traders to focus on assets such as goldand cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether.
Traders turn to alternative assets
Traders are currently focusing on assets such as gold, Bitcoin and Ether, as a broadly balanced trading mind is sidelining many other markets. In general, the worsening of the coronavirus outbreak in India is offsetting positive news elsewhere, with Europe advancing its vaccination programs and opening its borders.
US and UK airlines and travel companies are also working to lift US and UK travel restrictions, but this is also being offset by a global shortage of semiconductors, which is a concern for investors. Therefore, for example, Ether continues to push higher.
