What’s Causing the Drop in JM Financial Shares?

The central bank also prohibited the NBFC from providing financing against shares and debentures, including loans for IPOs and debenture subscriptions, effective immediately according to a PTI report.

In addition to instructing the entity to stop financing activities, the RBI is investigating potential regulatory violations by banks involved.

Despite concerns about cryptocurrency market stability, such as the collapse of the FTX exchange and legal issues involving key figures, the approval of Bitcoin ETFs indicates growing trust and improving infrastructure.

According to James Knightley, chief international economist at ING, high inflation levels in the US have prompted people to buy Bitcoin as a hedge against rising prices. “Risk appetite has also surged in recent weeks, with tech stocks fueling a sense of FOMO [fear of missing out] in markets, and I think Bitcoin is caught up in all of this,” The Guardian quoted him as saying.

However, Gary Gensler, head of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), still harbors reservations about the cryptocurrency market, despite reluctantly approving Bitcoin ETFs due to a court ruling. He stated, “Bitcoin is primarily a speculative, volatile asset that’s also used for illicit activity including ransomware, money laundering, sanction evasion, and terrorist financing.
