Crypto Tumbles After SEC Chair Comments

Crypto markets just took a decent tumble as two headlines hit the wires at similar times.

  1. First we saw comments from the Biden administration that it would likely follow former President Trump's China investment ban policy.

  2. Then, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler told the House Financial Services committee that congress should consider regulating crypto exchanges.

Most traders are pointing to the latter as the driver of the crypto drop but the timing suggests other factors involved…

Interestingly, as the CBOE broke, the drop in crypto stopped.

Putting the moves in context, Bitcoin dropped around $1500…

Appearing before the House Financial Services Committee on Thursday, newly anointed SEC Chairman Gary Gensler suggested that Congress should consider regulating cryptocurrency exchanges.

"It'd be good to consider whether to bring investor protection to the crypto exchanges," Gensler told Rep. Patrick McHenry.

"And I think if that were the case—because right now the exchanges trading in these crypto assets do not have a regulatory framework, either at the SEC or our sister agency, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission—that could instill greater confidence," he said.

"Right now, there’s not a market regulator around these crypto exchanges and thus there’s really no protection around fraud or manipulation.”

Nothing to be too concerned about in crypto-land and far less aggressive than Yellen's statements.

  1. Sure, if the Fed doesn’t own  it, you can bet they’re going to try to regulate and tax it. They can’t stand the idea of a self regulating vehicle that people can use for financial transactions that they can’t manipulate like the U.S. dollar. They’re running scared.
