Stock indices will show on Monday a strong reaction to the ECB forum in Portugal and the results of the two-day G7 summit. The speeches of the governors of the Central Banks of developed countries and the heads of seven states will contain economic forecasts, plans to combat high inflation and protect against a possible recession in national economies.
In addition, the participants of the G7 summit and the ECB forum will definitely touch upon the topic of cryptocurrencies. The collapse of the Terra ecosystem, rumors about the bankruptcy of the CeFi platform Celsius and the hedge fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC), can not do without comments from regulators.
