📈 Bitcoin soars to 19-month high. Bitcoin is back in the big leagues, surpassing $42,000 for the first time since April 2022. This bullish run is fueled by a trifecta of factors:

  1. ETF Fever: The prospect of a Bitcoin spot ETF approval is sending investors into a frenzy. This ETF would track the price of Bitcoin without the hassle of actually buying it, potentially unleashing a flood of new money into the market.

  2. Binance Back in Action: The world's biggest crypto exchange, Binance, has settled its AML investigation with the US DOJ, removing a major cloud of uncertainty that had been casting a shadow over the crypto market.

  3. Retail Frenzy: Regular folks are piling into Bitcoin with newfound enthusiasm, believing that the cryptocurrency is here to stay.

📈 Want to invest in crypto and stocks? We recommend M1 Finance.
