Looking at the data provided by MarketWatch, gold is in the green, trading at around $1,342.40, up by 0.66% on the day. Oil, on the other hand, is down by .21% on the day, trading around $51.57 at press time. Aside from oil, however, other traditional assets listed on the website remain in the green.

As previously reported on Cointelegraph, investment advisory group San Francisco Open Exchange (SFOX) released a volatility report on June 6, saying that the crypto market has transitioned from “mildly bullish” to “uncertain.” SFOX cautioned that the bullish growth in May could have been unsustainable growth due to investor FOMO (fear of missing out).

In the report, SFOX conjectured that bitcoin’s major rally on May 13 might have been the result of the on-going trade war between the United States and China. It also noted that the “flash crash” on May 17 may have been the result of a sale on cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp, in which 5,000 BTC was sold significantly below market value at $6,200.
