OK, Friday’s charts have been maybe a bit too fiendish. We wished them to be difficult in order that we wouldn’t have to select a winner from a dozen right entries, nevertheless it turned out that nobody fully nailed all three.
Listed below are the proper solutions:
This reveals UBS’s quarterly internet earnings because the Nineties. It will probably thank Credit Suisse for the accounting gain that produced that final spike.
This reveals the share value of the Grayscale Bitcoin Belief after a decide dominated that the SEC was wrong to reject Grayscale’s utility to show it into an ETF.
And this confirmed the general short interest of hedge funds in US Treasuries, going by CFTC data. Maybe unsurprisingly, this one was the toughest chart to guess, and just one individual bought it proper: Oliver Felix from Swiss Re.
Oliver nailed the primary chart as effectively, and solely did not get an ideal file by guessing that the second confirmed the worth of bitcoin in $’000s after the GBTC ruling, quite than GBTC itself. However having mentioned this inside FTAV Towers, that’s nonetheless shut sufficient to earn him the t-shirt. So congratulations to Oliver!
