    Debt ceiling reaches tentative deal

    As mentioned, Biden confirmed reaching a budget deal with Speaker McCarthy. Meantime, the agreement awaits more discussions before going to the U.S. House & Senate.

    The deal includes increasing the fed government’s $31.4T debt ceiling, halting a months-long standoff. Moreover, it involves capping spending and increasing the debt limit for two years.

    Nonetheless, the news brought relief to the crypto market, with prices reacting to the agreement with green moves. Thus, today’s surges in the cryptocurrency space likely stemmed from rallies in the United States stock markets.

    The day ahead

    It remains a somewhat quiet Sunday as markets will close tomorrow due to Monday’s Memorial Day. With no economic signals from the United States, the latest updates of the U.S. preventing a calamitous default will offer support on the day ahead.

    Nonetheless, market players should keep following cryptocurrency news. Updates related to Binance, SEC vs. Ripple, and Coinbase remain crucial for the markets’ outlook
