The Securities and Exchange Commission has announced a decision to postpone the ruling on the proposed ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF until next year. The new deadline for this decision has been set for January 10.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Dollar index, soared to a 10-month high on Wednesday to 106.21 — the highest since Nov. 30. This is amid a backdrop of surging 10-year treasuries, which have touched 16-year highs, as economic data remains upbeat despite elevated interest rates, reported Reuters
Jamie Dimon, has cautioned that the Federal Reserve raising the rates to 7% could spell disaster as it would result in increased financial stress. “That will be the tide going out,” said Dimon.
Crypto analyst Michael Van de Poppe predict that Bitcoin will experience some weakness and may not break crucial levels.
Benjamin Cowen noted that in the past 30 days, the supply of ETH has increased. Due to a decrease in demand as tourists exit the market, the amount of ETH being burned has also decreased.
