Bitcoins are taking a breather this morning, in its stead is Litecoin +28%, Iota +13.5% and Ripple +11%. My favorite crypto, Monaco, is higher by only 3.5%, pedestrian/equity-esque type gains.
WTI is up 0.6% and doesn’t look like it wants lower. The only thing lower is Nasdaq futures, off by 1. The US yield curve is static at 56bps.
