Invictus Capital: Weekly Wrap 11.02

The week witnessed heightened levels of volatility across crypto markets. An exceptional weekend rally saw Bitcoin break upwards to $42,000, with the rest of the market also buoyant. This momentum carried markets upwards throughout the week, making for a volatile trading environment.

The release of above-expectation US inflation figures — at 7.5% year-on-year — contributed to this volatility. Markets are now coming close to pricing in a 50 basis point rate hike from the Fed in March, up from expectations of none only a few weeks back. This drove Bitcoin to tumble from $45,000 to $43,000, before a short-squeeze propelled it back to $46,000, all in the space of 2 hours. The inflation narrative could not however be ignored and markets subsequently retraced downwards, with Bitcoin aiming to close out the week marginally above $43,000. Bonds sold off heavily, though global equities trended upwards along with both the dollar and gold.

Elsewhere in crypto, the US government this week seized $3.6 billion in Bitcoin tied to the 2016 hack of crypto exchange Bitfinex. In a statement, Bitfinex said that it “will work with the DOJ and follow appropriate legal processes to establish our rights to a return of the stolen bitcoin.” This could result in additional selling pressure on Bitcoin as 80% of any funds recovered by Bitfinex will be used to repurchase and burn LEO tokens.
