Trakx Weekly Update: October 24, 2022
Key Crypto Market Figures
Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance
Last week was relatively quiet in crypto markets, with the main tokens continuing to trade within the ranges set during the summer. In fact, as a result of the lack of strong movement, historic volatility of Bitcoin is now very close to that of GBP/USD, whose price whipsawed following the departure of the PM after just 44 days in the job. So much for cryptocurrencies being too volatile to serve as money! Within the Trakx indices, the best performer was the Diversifier, up 8% on the back of continued strong gains in Huobi token as investors responded favourably to the news that Tron founder Justin Sun had joined the advisory board along with other industry leaders.
