BREAKDOWN: How Real Is This Relief Rally?

Some think we hit a local bottom while others are skeptical of the bounce. 

This episode is sponsored by, NEAR and FTX US.  

On today’s show, NLW explores the discussion around the bitcoin relief rally of the last two days, following the crash last Friday and Saturday. Some think that there are a plethora of bottom signals that suggest we may have a mean reversion and return to being correlated with equities, after falling much faster than Nasdaq thanks to the Luna/Terra implosion. Others think that we won’t find a bottom until equities find a bottom, and that doesn’t seem to have happened yet.
