What Turns Crypto Market Red?

The crypto market is bearing the burden of global economic uncertainty. Treasury rates have soared as the Federal Reserve continues its aggressive stance. The stock market has also plummeted because of the uncertainties surrounding China. The S&P 500 is down 0.8%, while the NASDAQ 100 is down 0.5%. The cryptocurrency market is highly correlated with the stock market, especially the tech-heavy NASDAQ.

As the UK's macroeconomic crisis persists, the pound remains highly volatile. UK Prime Minister Liz Truss resigned, and the Conservative Party is currently looking for a new leader. That news is likely to cause significant volatility.
