Light At The End Of The Tunnel?
Investors grew increasingly optimistic that other banks would not suffer the same fate as Silicon Valley and Signature, which led to a rebound in bank stock prices after they had been pummelling during Monday’s trading session. This optimism led to a rebound in the value of banking stocks, which had fallen sharply earlier in the day. On Sunday, the regulating bodies officially stated that they had devised a strategy to protect the funds deposited in the two banks.
Market gains extended beyond the recovery of the banks. The majority of S&P 500 sectors saw gains, with energy and communication services companies dominating the market. While Bitcoin’s price increase has been an important catalyst for driving up the prices of crypto stocks, the upcoming announcement from the Federal Reserve regarding the increase in interest rates also pose an important indicator for the future price movement of Bitcoin and its effect on companies that are linked to the world cryptocurrencies.
