|The crypto market is approaching from two days of bearish sideways movements, due to the expiration of Bitcoin options. Today is the expiration day, so traders are expected to settle part of the obligations. This could generate some corrections; however, institutions and Bulls continue with purchases, so it is expected that during the weekend Bitcoin will reach USD$50,000 again.

|DAX 30 +0.08%|
|Indices in Europe are in positive territory, although with slight upward movements as we await the Jackson Hole results. Traders continue to evaluate scenarios. On the one hand, the Fed could announce tapering, which would generate a correction in equities in the short term. It could also announce tapering for 2022, which would give portfolios some breathing space to reposition assets. Finally, it could do nothing, which would put pressure on commodities. Meanwhile, the DAX 30 is up 0.08% and is trading at 15,785.|
