At the end of Thursday, the blockchain-powered currency topped off gold, hitting the price of $1,268 for a single unit of Bitcoin compared to $1,233 for a troy ounce of gold, BBC reports.

The yellow metal has suffered major losses and is still positioned to fall even further, as by the end of Thursday's trading session a massive and strong support cluster was passed. During the early hours of Friday's trading session the bullion attempted to break above the cluster near the 1,235 level, but it failed and began to decline. Due to that reason it can be assumed that the Bullion will continue lower, as the range down to the 1,219.20 level, where the 38.20% Fibonacci retracement level is located at, is free from any other support levels.
Online gambling sites are no longer welcome in Switzerland after legislators voted to require internet service providers to block the domains of unapproved sites. The Swiss House of Representatives voted on Wednesday in favor of the proposed blockage of Internet access to real-money gambling websites that have not been licensed by local authorities. The measure had previously been approved by the Senate. Discussions over the proposed block of international operators emerged once again in January. However, the effort, which has long been called for by domestic casino, betting, and lottery companies, lost some momentum after Swiss telecoms voiced certain opposition earlier this year. “Blocking websites works – experience abroad demonstrates that,” said Thierry Burkart from the centre-right Radical Party.
Regulators have levied financial penalties of $321 billion on banks globally since the 2007-2008 financial crisis, following regulatory lapses, global currency scandals, and market manipulation, according to a note by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG).

A number of factors have helped drive this trend, including a more concerted focus from US regulators such as the US’ Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). However, an overall more aggressive tone from US regulators has helped punish fraudulent behavior, accruing record fines over this period, according to a recent Bloomberg report.
