Bitcoin’s value is slowing climbing, and has exceeded the $1,000/ea valuation for the first time in about three years. Bitcoin reached its highest value at $1,200 back in 2013, which set the standards of just how far and fast a form of currency could go, Phys.org reports. Now, the digital unit is close to clinching or even surpassing this number as it rocketed past the $1,000 ceiling on Sunday. The currency is largely used for online purchases in which anonymity is important, though it is increasingly being accepted by mainstream retailers, too.
There was no trading of Gold Monday morning, which led to a lack of motion in the XAU/USD price. As for future movements, the pair has dashed through the 20-day SMA, but losses are likely to be cut at 1,138.98, the lower trend-line. We will look for the channel to remain in force until the upper trend-line of the senior bearish channel is reached, and it could take around at least three weeks to do that. The current downward motion could experience some hitches at 1,148.39, the weekly Pivot Point before the ultimate daily target is addressed.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan downplayed concerns that London will suffer in the wake of Brexit, telling CNBC in an interview that European Union citizens "are welcome" in the city and "that's not going to change." Khan has vowed to “DEFY Brexit” by working on proposals for London-only work visas, not because he and the city’s business leaders believe this would help buttress its economy in the uncertain years ahead, but simply in order to “maintain the number of migrants entering London”. He told CNBC that one of their main concerns is to continue to attract talent post-Brexit. Among other advantages, Britain is hoping to retain access to Europe's common market, which currently requires the country to allow free movement of E.U. citizens across borders.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating the sale of $850 million in bonds issued by Mozambique by Credit Suisse, Russia's VTB Group and BNP Paribas, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday. The southern African nation in October said its debt was unsustainable and the International Monetary Fund suspended assistance to Mozambique when evidence of $2 billion in secret loans emerged. The bonds were sold in 2013 to finance a Mozambican state-owned firm's plans to develop tuna fishing in the impoverished nation, but the government later said it had also bought military equipment with the funds. The probe opens a new chapter in a scandal of hidden debts which has rocked Mozambique, one of the world's poorest countries, for months. The SEC in November asked bondholders for documents provided by Credit Suisse, VTB and BNP Paribas during the sale of the bonds, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a letter sent to bondholders. The letter also asked investors to share with the SEC all communications with the banks related to the bonds.
