So with everything we've seen over the past few weeks, we know that economically we are moving toward a huge breaking point. Our base case is that this breaking point will be prevented by Fed intervention, last week we already saw a signal of this,

So what we have been talking about for months became visible last week. It is essential for the markets to see a trend change in policy, and we see this potential change here.

What the message makes clear is that the Fed is considering changing the course around rate hikes, from 75bps to 50bps. This is not a PIVOT! But a first signal that they realize what is going on. So for the economy still QT, but like the economic data, markets are extrapolating this toward future policy.

So where the economy looks one way now, with a change in policy the economy will look another way in 12-18 months. That's how markets work.

The crypto market thinks 12-18 months ahead, so that's why this period is of extreme interest to investors like you and me!
