Market News

It’s the end of a quarter, but the beginning of a new era for Invictus Capital. From today, our open-ended investment funds are now regulated mutual funds managed by a licensed investment manager — a monumental achievement for the entire Invictus team. We’d like to thank all of our investors who have joined us on this journey thus far. We’ll continue to offer the same stellar fund management and quality of service that you’re used to, but now with additional peace of mind.

In markets this week, the US yield curve, as measured by the difference between 2- and 10-year bond yields, inverted, and a flurry of debate erupted over the validity of this classical recession signal in the era of QE. Despite the debate, commodity and energy price inflation compound the need to continue aggressively hiking interest rates, and point to a very real chance that we see recessionary conditions over the coming 18 months. Bond markets are signalling 4 rate hikes from the ECB over the next year, while in the US they’re calling for two subsequent 50bps hikes at the next two meetings after already hiking in March.

This has seen an extended period of bullish momentum for crypto and equities appear to be at risk of petering out. Tuesday saw Bitcoin, and most equity indices globally hit their weekly high — with Bitcoin just briefly breaching the $48,000 level. Gold edged down over the week alongside rising long-term bond yields in the US and Europe as markets continue to price in higher-and-higher inflation outcomes each passing week. Bitcoin subsequently experienced a price correction towards the end of the week, finding support at the $45,000 level. This will be a key level of support going forward.

Podcast with Stanislaw Trzebinski

Today’s host Shado Twala (@shadotwala) welcomes our guests, Stanislaw Trzebinski, One of the NFT Lab’s participating artists.

Born into a creative family in Kenya, and has been moulded by the cross-section of African, Arabic, and European culture embodied in the region. After a brief stint studying at the Pratt Institute in New York, Africa continued to call and he made the move to Cape Town, South Africa to become a sculpting apprentice. His sculptures celebrate the human form, combining muscularity and a sense of movement with protruding shapes and a sense of mysticism that combine to demonstrate an incredible understanding of anatomy from the largely self-taught artist.
