With bonds crashing speculators take Bitcoin to nearly $1500

On May 1 the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury came out at a conference and joked that Wall Street has him to thank for the rise in bank stocks since the Administration took over the Oval Office back in January.  However, this was soon followed by almost contradictory comments by President Trump when he told reporters that he was very open to breaking up these same banks Secretary Mnuchin had praised earlier.

As a consequence, the 30 year Treasury bond took a precipitous dive as yields spiked in a single move the highest they have in over nine years.


Interestingly, the winner in all of this appears to be the crypto-currencies as both Bitcoin and Ether soared during the same time bonds were crashing, and Bitcoin alone reached a new all-time close to $1500 a coin.
The price of Bitcoin accelerated its recent exponential trend higher, soaring to daily all-time highs over the past few days, rising above $1,300 on Friday, then pushing $1,400 on Monday, and even above $1,500 on the second-largest BTC exchange, and was last trading just above $1,460 on Coinbase amid a buying frenzy attributed to speculative investment across the cryptocurrency sector, coupled with liquidity problem at some exchanges which were having problems processing fiat-based transactions. - Zerohedge
