European futures digest G7 message which represents a more hostile behavior against China. Bitcoin prices are on the move again as investors find some comfort in Elon Musk’s tweet which indicated that Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) may begin to accept Bitcoin again if 50% mining energy comes from renewable.

Stock Market

The stock market ended the trading session on a high note on Friday, with the S&P 500 closing at a record high. Last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.8%, while the S&P 500 index rose 0.4%. The NASDAQ, the tech-savvy index, gained 1.9%, rising for the fourth week in a row as the tech sector regained prominence. Stock markets rose after officials announced that inflation had risen at the fastest rate since 2008. Traders believe that the rate will likely fall in the future.

Ease of lockdowns in UK

Because of the spike in the coronavirus variant in the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson is very likely to extend the time span for reducing lockdowns. The Prime Minister will meet with Cabinet members to approve a four-week delay in eliminating lockdowns. This is cause for alarm among investors, as another wave of the virus might hamper the UK's economic recovery.
