Trish: Futures Markets Point to Rebound, Crypto In Free-Fall After Chinese Crackdown

Markets are reversing some of their losses after panicking over the Fed’s supposed “taper talk” in futures trading Monday.

The reality is this: the Fed will either do the right thing sometime in the next 6 months and drastically scale back its bond buying program or, it won’t and the inflation will grow far worse. Investors must be prepare for both scenarios.

Crypto investors, meanwhile, are being hit hard by the Chinese crackdown on Bitcoin mining.
