Crypto Industry News:
European Commissioner for Finance, Valdis Dombrovskis, has promised to propose new regulations governing cryptocurrencies, such as Facebook Libra.
According to financial media reports, speaking to EU legislators, Dombrovskis said:
“Europe needs a common approach to crypto-assets such as Libra. I intend to propose new legislation in this area.”
Dombrovskis, who was the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of Latvia and a Member of the European Parliament in the years 2004–2009, is currently seeking reappointment as the Vice-President of the European Commission.
If he were re-appointed, he would be given the task of “an economy that works for the people” and would still be responsible for the Commission’s financial services portfolio and its work on “deepening economic and monetary union”, as emphasized by the chairwoman Ursula von der Leyen.
In addition to emphasizing the need for new legislation on cryptocurrencies in Europe, Dombrovskis spoke of the need for the EU to address “unfair competition, cybersecurity, and threats to financial stability”.

Due to the short-term impulsive scenario invalidation, the best strategy in the current market conditions is to trade with the larger timeframe trend, which is still up. All the shorter timeframe moves are still being treated as a counter-trend correction inside of the uptrend. When the wave 2 corrective cycles are completed, the market might will ready for another impulsive wave up of a higher degree and uptrend continuation.
