Crypto News: A Weekly Review

On Tuesday, Bitcoin (BTC) traded flat, halting a % price increase over the previous week. Stocks rose on Tuesday as Russian and Ukrainian authorities said that cease-fire talks had progressed.


Gold and the US dollar fell throughout the New York trading day, while the Chicago Board Options Exchange’s CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), a popular gauge of the stock market’s expectation of volatility based on S&P 500 index options, fell to its lowest level in a month.


The ongoing recovery rally in speculative assets may be supported by fading volatility, which suggests reduced concern among market players. Nonetheless, some researchers are waiting for hints of a short-term fall, mainly in crypto. Bitcoin is rising in pace with stock indexes, and it is widely used as a strong indicator of investor sentiment. As a result, a brief drop in bitcoin might imply a drop in stock prices. Let us look at what happened in the cryptoverse.
