07 January 2022

07 January 2022
"The S&P 500 ended a volatile session close to unchanged on Thursday, as technology shares fell but financials lent support a day after the market sold off on a hawkish slant in Federal Reserve minutes. The S&P 500 financials index (.SPSY)rose 1.6%, extending this week's strong gains. Other economically sensitive sectors also advanced. Energy (.SPNY) gained 2.3% and is up more than 9% since Dec. 31.

Growth equity booms as investors embrace private markets
07 January 2022
Growth equity has become one of the hottest corners of the private capital industry, as ever-larger companies eschew public markets and find strong demand among investors desperate for higher-returning bets. The investment strategy has long existed as a vibrant yet ill-defined halfway house between traditional venture capital firms that acquire small stakes in nascent companies, and private equity funds that usually buy more mature ones outright. But torrential inflows into private markets from investors seeking alternatives to mainstream stocks and bonds have helped buoy dedicated growth equity funds — which typically finance well-established but still younger, fast-growing private companies in return for minority stakes — and transform them into a larger and more distinct asset class."

These Four Charts Show Some of Bitcoin’s Potential Trouble Spots
07 January 2022
"Bitcoin is down about 40% from its November record and there is increasing evidence the decline may not be done yet. The largest cryptocurrency has failed to gain momentum in every attempted rally in the past couple of months, and dropped Friday to nearly $41,000. The latest declines come after minutes of the Federal Reserve’s December meeting showed a potential for earlier- and faster-than-expected rate increases, as well as considerations about balance-sheet runoff. Lack of interest and demand due to the holiday season, tax-based selling and concern in the markets about the Fed’s potential actions are resulting in turn-of-year weakness, said Vijay Ayyar, vice president of corporate development and international at crypto exchange Luno in Singapore. He expects levels between $38,000 to $40,000 to come into focus." For more information please press
