🔍 Market Highlights in October 🔍
Since late August, the Fear & Greed Index of the BTC market has been hovering in the "Extra Fear", especially when the global economy is in recession, making investors more cautious.
As of October 31, the crypto market Fear & Greed Index was [Extra Fear 31], up 10 from [Extra Fear 21] last month.
This year, the correlation between the crypto market and the stock market reached an unprecedented height. On the 27th of this month, the correlation between BTC and ETH and the NASDAQ index reached 0.52 and 0.63 respectively. In addition, the third-quarter financial statements released by large technology companies this month were also disappointing - Microsoft's third-quarter revenue fell 14% year on year, while Google's parent company Alphabet's fell 27% year on year. Since this year, Microsoft's share price has dropped nearly 26%, Apple's has dropped nearly 15%, and Meta's decline is the largest among several large technology companies, falling nearly 60%.
However, the large-scale selling and collapse that people feared did not happen, and Black October finally passed through "safely".
In the following days, we need to focus on the upcoming Federal Reserve meeting. According to a survey conducted by Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the market now believes that the possibility of the Federal Reserve raising interest rates by 75 basis points in November has reached 94.2%. If the 75 basis points increase is realized, the policy interest rate will rise to 3.75% - 4%.
According to the media, there are wide differences of opinion within the Federal Reserve on whether to slow down the pace of interest rate increase. Some officials believe that the interest rate should be increased by 75 basis points at the next two meetings; some argue that the suspension of an interest rate increase should be considered after the inflation rate drops to 4.4%; whereas others believe that the Federal Reserve should slow down the pace of interest rate increase as soon as possible, and stop raising interest rates at the beginning of 2023 to observe the impact of this year's interest rate increase on the U.S. economy and reduce the risk of a sharp economic slowdown.
