China & Germany

China publishes its latest loan prime rate, plus look out for Germany's producer price index. Then on Tuesday, we get the minutes from the last RBA meeting. From the UK, watch out for public sector net borrowing details from the UK, which will be quite interesting given we have seen months of strike action across many sectors from Germany, a big data point there and possible entry or exit point for traders is the ZEW economic sentiment indicator. From the US, we have existing home sales and crude oil inventories data.


Midweek, we get the consumer price index and producer price data from the UK along with those retail numbers. This should give us a clearer idea of whether or not that super sticky inflation is coming off those high levels. In the US, we get a continuation of oil data with crude oil inventories from the EIA. Plus, a Fed interest rate decision, followed by the Bank of England.

    • 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?
