Why increased Bitcoin volatility matters for other risk assets

In today’s note, I had intended to write about the release of Australian Capital Expenditure data tomorrow that provides an outlook of what firms plan to spend on buildings and equipment by industry. A rather dry subject, but topical in the current climate of booming commodities and how mining companies plan to respond to surging demand.

Bitcoin finds stability in May

After it’s capitulation in March and subsequent recovery in April, the month of May has brought much-needed stability to the price of Bitcoin, amongst further signs of acceptance and institutional legitimacy. While the “halving” on May 11 appears to have been factored into the price of Bitcoin in advance, the month of May has been notable for the following reasons.
