US inflation rises and boom there go all the profits down the drain!

0,1 % inflation in August

The last few days the markets were acting pretty decent, green numbers all over the place. Both crypto and the stock markets grew nicely the last week. Up until this afternoon…

The inflation number for the month of August was released. The market was expecting a drop of 0,1 %, but nope, that was not the case. Prices still rose in August in the US. With 0,1 %! And the markets didn’t like it one bit.
Almos all the gains of the last week were just wiped away in minutes. And that’s the case for crypto too, Bitcoin went from 22,3k to 20,6k in the blink of an eye. And of course Hive went down with it.

Overreacting

Talk about overreacting, this reaction by the markets is completely out of proportion. Ok, inflation needs to drop, but this is nuts. The rise of 0,1 % in August doesn’t mean that the companies on the Nasdaq are suddenly worth 4,5 % less. But that’s exactly what happened. The same for Bitcoin and other crypto currencies.

In my opinion this is a huge buying opportunity, the discount we are getting compared to yesterday is just too good to leave on the table!

Just my opinion and no financial advice!

Sincerely,

The entire market was expecting a decline or at least a hold in CPI expectations, but it surprised all once again and it will also help FED to amplify its hawkish rhetoric. BTC tanked hard, but it does not seem like HIVE is affected by all such things at all, which is actually good.

Inflation doesn’t reside in the blink of an eye because interest rates are raised. Kind of a blunt assumption by the markets
