Investors’ in a wait-and-watch situation:
It is believed that investors have become more cautious and are in a wait-and-watch situation in anticipation of this week’s newsworthy events. This can be said as Bitcoin’s price is showing no sign of life. The US Congress is expected to hold its first hearing into the FTX collapse on Tuesday (December 13), with the Senate Banking Committee following suit the next day.
Meanwhile, investors are keenly watching the outcome of the Federal Open Market Committee meeting that is scheduled for December 14. Markets are also waiting for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for November, which will be out on Tuesday, and Federal Reserve (Fed) meeting slated to be held on Wednesday.
