Regulation of the crypto market has taken a crucial move forward following comments made earlier this week by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler.
During an interview with CNBC, Gensler said Bitcoin should now be labelled as a commodity.
As I was quoted by Investor Ideas, Mena FN, Share Wise, StockHead and Biz Community, amongst others, the SEC Chairman’s comments have cleared up years of debate. Bitcoin is now viewed as a commodity by one of the most influential regulators in the world, just like gold, and not a Read More

Following reports of a number of major crypto companies struggling during the current volatility, they need to stop making avoidable mistakes that undermine the industry, lead to financial chaos for investors and job losses for workers.

Plans to ditch mortgage affordability rules by the Bank of England are, I believe, utter madness. The new rules mean lenders will no longer have to check whether homeowners would be able to keep up their mortgage payments at higher interest rates.
The move by the central bank is bizarre, and that’s putting it mildly.
A stress test is included in the current affordability checks to cover increasing rates, so as to avoid another credit crunch as we saw in Read More

Our Chief Operating and Diversity Officer, Beverley Yeomans is right when she says that female financial services leaders must “leave the ladder down” for other women to increase much-needed representation in this still male-dominated industry.
Concerns are mounting following new findings that show a lack of female representation at the helm of the financial services sector.
Although there has been progress in recent times, the industry is still Read More
With the Bitcoin price recovery now in play, I believe we’ll see an imminent bull run which will result in a significant bounce this summer.
The world’s largest cryptocurrency finally brought an end to its longest weekly losing streak on record. Indeed, Bitcoin ended last week at $29,900, which was $450 higher than the previous Sunday, after grappling to find support over the weekend.
As I was quoted by Forbes and Investing.com, amongst other media, I think this is a great Read More
As international concerns heighten as the energy crisis deepens, investors should focus on the long-term future rewards in sustainable investments, as I told Financial Express, amongst other media outlets.
Earlier this week we saw the EU decided to proceed with a partial ban on Russian oil. This prohibits the purchase of crude oil and petroleum products from Russia delivered to member states by sea.
This followed on from reports of six million homes facing blackouts over winter Read More
Despite Emmanuel Macron’s historic win in the elections in France on Sunday night, there’ll only be a modest rally due to the intensifying geopolitical and economic issues.
Macron was re-elected as French president for a second term, winning 58.54% of the vote, whilst far-right challenger Marine Le Pen won 41.46%.
The markets have avoided the shock and uncertainty that would have sent them into turmoil should Marine Le Pen have won, as she would have Read More
Five days to go until I’ll be taking on La Valette Marathon in Malta to support the people of Ukraine who have had to literally run for their lives to escape the conflict.
Ukraine’s President Zelensky has said the war has now entered a “new phase” amid attacks by Russian forces along a broad front in the east of the country, as part of a full-scale ground offensive.
Due to this ongoing, horrific war, over 10 million people have had to flee, dodging bombs, shelling and Read More
Bitcoin will rally from the latest cryptocurrency crash to hit a new record high of $75,000 by the end of this year.
That’s my latest prediction, even as Bitcoin’s price declined under the $40k mark a number of times on Monday, impacting the wider crypto sector.
The total crypto market is down $1.89 trillion currently, an 11% fall compared to last week.
What we’ve seen is Bitcoin briefly falling under $40,000, tracking losses in global equities. The correlation with Read More
As Bitcoin hit its highest level since the beginning of the year earlier this week, the latest price run will be fuelled by the Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO) and fundamentals.
The world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap has risen close to 25% over the past 10 days, surpassing the $35,000-$45,000 range it’s been in since January. Indeed, BTC is moving ever closer to the all-important $50,000 mark.
