Euro feels weight of French election concerns
  • Gold had a solid start this year, logging in the biggest quarterly gain since September 2020 as the ongoing war in Ukraine and concerns over sky-high inflation raised demand for the safe-haven asset
  • The euro weakened, with the Swiss franc and the Swedish crown the winners as French election worries and the chance of more sanctions against Russia unnerved investors
  • On Satoshi Nakamoto's "birthday", Lightning Labs announced the new ability to issue and transfer assets, including stablecoins such as Tether (USDT), instantly and virtually for free via Lightning Network
  • WTI/USD dove 1.3%
  • USD/JPY rose 0.6%
  • BTC/USD dove 1.4%
