Q: Should investors buy Bitcoin Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)?
A: So far, the premise of massive money flows into Bitcoin driven by the launch of ETFs has not come to fruition. The charts below for Fidelity and BlackRock ETFs illustrate that point for now.
Q: Why are the equity markets “smooshy” year to date?
A: The McGowanGroup sees three factors at play. 1. The December celebration rally corresponded to the likely Federal Reserve’s reversal to lower interest rates has not yet occurred. 2. Current Earnings Reports have been mixed. 3. The 10 Year U.S. Treasury yield has spiked to over 4.13% at the highs this week. Stay tuned to this week’s program as Spencer McGowan and Alex Tollen breakdown insights for investors.
