What's driving the crypto sell-off? Francis Hunt shifts from Market Sniper to Crypto Sniper to sort through the competing narratives on recent price action with Real Vision's Ash Bennington. Hunt emphasizes macroeconomic factors, noting the positive correlation between Bitcoin and tech stocks. "I can't give flagrant moon calls in this environment," says Hunt, adding "a caution to the downside" would be his stance.
