Will 2023 be the Year for Crypto Regulation?

It’s the tail end of earnings season! While U.S. markets are closed Monday, this week has 890 companies reporting. There are some names to pay attention to either for trading purposes or for putting some protections on...if they are in your portfolio. Such companies include Copart, Walmart, Home Depot, Nvidia, Medtronic, eBay, PG&E, and Berkshire Hathaway.

And now for some news on Cryptocurrency. The last few weeks saw actions taken against digital asset and cryptocurrency projects by regulators such as the SEC and CFTC. Despite this, the price of Bitcoin has remained fairly bullish over the past couple of months. However, 2023 may be the year for regulatory actions and setting guardrails for the crypto market, but the extent of regulation remains uncertain.

Lastly, it’s the topic of inflation and how the fight is still on. Last week saw higher-than-expected CPI and PPI numbers which caused market turbulence.
