“While the recent good news is now widely anticipated by investors, future central bank actions remain a mystery. The meeting next June is obviously advanced for the U.S. institution to give a precise timetable on its tapering, but nothing is less certain,” said John Plassard of Mirabaud Bank.
Regarding the crypto-currencies, the instability persists and the bitcoin goes back up to 39.000 dollars, after having fallen under 32.000 dollars this weekend.
