Invictus Capital: Weekly Wrap 03.12
The weekly wrap can be delivered to your inbox at the end of each week by subscribing to the Invictus Capital newsletter at the bottom of the homepage
We saw a volatile week in traditional markets. Monday opened cheerfully after Friday’s omicron-driven selloff, with markets downgrading their fears that the new variant would bring about a new round of lockdowns globally. JP Morgan even offered up a potential scenario in which the new variant, if it caused less severe illness, would be a boon for the global economy by crowding out the delta variant’s impact. The market mood was, however, short-lived. Tuesday saw Fed chairman Powell testify before Congress that inflation could no longer be viewed as a transitory phenomenon, finally shattering the market dogma in place over much of 2021.
The dollar initially sold off as equities and gold rallied, however, Powell’s testimony helped steady the dollar’s decent from Tuesday — ending the week flat while gold ended down. The yield curve, a common measure of market growth expectations, flattened slightly indicating that the Fed’s response against inflation would work, but at the expense of slowing long-term growth.
Bitcoin had a flat week spent within the $56k-59k range — despite a bout of volatility following Powell’s Tuesday remarks. Ethereum rallied to $4,700 after four consecutive days of growth (and an all-time high in BTC terms). Elsewhere in the altcoin market Terra (LUNA) posted a standout performance as it broke record highs, while Polygon (MATIC) surged to $2 as it holds on to its position as the most popular Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution. Solana also had a stellar week as Grayscale, the largest digital asset management firm globally with over $50 billion in AUM, launched a Solana fund that caters to high net worth and institutional clients. These surging altcoin market caps have seen Bitcoin’s market dominance slip to around 40% (from the 47% seen in October).
