A Volatile Start to The New Year | Stock Indices | Oil | Crypto

Welcome to 2024. To start the year, we have seen a bit of volatility in the first trading week of the year.

We have made a quick review video of some of the key markets we have been watching over the last few days. We have asked a few questions in today’s video; feel free to drop us a comment if you wish to chip in.

Indices – Indices have been moving lower this week. Is this just a short-term pullback, or could we see a deep correction develop?

Oil – Current price action in USO is looking more to the bullish side. Could this be the start of a new higher move?

Crypto – We saw a shock to start the NY after rumours/comments suggested the SEC may try to delay or object to the BTC ETF. We all saw the sales that hit the markets yesterday. Is this a fragile start? Could Crypto be overdone? Or is this just another buying opportunity?


Good trading.
