The U.K.’s FTSE 100 is set to dip 30 points to 7,374, Germany’s DAX by 84 points to 15,823 and France’s CAC by 29 points to 7,140. Markets will close at lunchtime on Friday due to the New Year’s Eve celebrations and the Swiss SMI and Italy’s FTSE MIB will be shut all day.

Global investors have been looking for a Santa Claus rally to close out a year of solid returns. The FTSE and the DAX are on track to see gains of 15% for this year, while the French CAC is close to a 30% gain.

 

Historically, many benchmarks gain during the Santa Claus rally — the final five trading days of the current year and the first two of the new year. The period began Monday.

On Wall Street, stock futures were mildly lower on Thursday night ahead of the final trading day of 2021. In Asia, Hong Kong stocks led gains among major markets on Friday, with Chinese tech stocks in the city soaring.

Market players have spent recent weeks juggling concerns over new Covid restrictions and tighter central bank policy, with early studies suggesting the omicron strain of the virus is milder than previous variants like delta. New studies in South Africa and the U.K. last week suggested omicron has a reduced risk of hospitalization and severe illness.

    • It would be difficult and the next line of action would be withdrawal of assets to a good alternative exchange or wallet and observe how the whole drama will end 
    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
