BTC rebound memeAlternative investment including Crypto did well this month however traditional markets were mostly rangebound  as  industrial production numbers from China were disappointing .Delta variant has also put market in a jeopardy . Fed QE tapering plan is adding to the woes of market.
Interest Rate Hike
The broader crypto market continued its bullish price action over the past month with layer-1 solutions Solana and Terra ($LUNA) leading the pack after breaking all-time highs followed by Cardano, which is due to release smart contracts on September 12 . In contrast to traditional markets, crypto seems to be thriving .
Midcaps and Small Caps suffered back home. Investors have moved capital into large caps. it’s now to be seen that large caps will correct or midcaps will pullback   Mid smallcap losers 2408_001
