  • FOMC and US data dominate the landscape.
  • Short-term trading range narrows.
  • Retail traders add to their long positions.

Gold is trading in a very tight range since last Friday as traders and investors wait for a rush of heavyweight US economic data, the latest FOMC policy decision, and a deluge of US company earnings that may well set the risk trend for the coming days and weeks. Coming up today, the latest look at US consumer confidence, while in the equity space, Microsoft and Alphabet A+C report, three of the top 10 S&P 500 companies by weighting. Wednesday’s FOMC decision is the main event this week with the market pricing in a 75 basis point rate hike, and post-hike commentary will likely drive the next US dollar move.

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
