- Asian stocks rallied welcoming the calmer atmosphere in Italy. EU shares are expected to rally in tandem.
- Cryptocurrencies are mostly looking for a rebound up. Meanwhile, South Korea’s big exchange Bitumb banned Crypto trading in 11 countries including Iran & Iraq for not having adequate tools to regulate and prevent money laundering, thus dabbed Non-Compliant Countries & Territories (NCCT).
