The Crypto Weekly Lookout: February 28, 2022 edition

What should investors expect in the cryptocurrency market this week?

Probably more volatility along the lines of last week.

As we all know by now, crypto has been largely trading as a risk-on asset as we inch closer to the Fed’s first rate hike in March. This risk-on behavior has not changed during times of war as many investors sold risk-on assets and fled to the safety of the US Dollar and gold among others as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last week.

We also know that the correlation between crypto and equities has been quite elevated in recent times as more institutions pour money into the crypto market and as all financial markets prepare for the end of easy monetary policy.

So what could add to or lessen the expected volatility this week?
