Investing.com – Fidelity Digital Assets, a subsidiary of Fidelity Investments, will begin offering institutional investors the ability to trade and hold before the end of the month, according to an email sent to clients.

The wealth manager is thus continuing its long-standing strategy, which is based on the fact that cryptocurrencies are much more than just technology. From a societal perspective, it is a type of money that is better than fiat money issued by central banks.

Ethereum: Technical benchmarks
Ethereum is currently losing -0.59% with an ETH/USD price of $1292, while the weekly gain is 7.04%.
The resistance of the 23.6% Fibo retracement at $1335 was tested on Monday and Tuesday. The bulls failed to reach a daily close above this level and the price retreated from this level again. The door therefore remains open for a test of the low of October 13 at 1196 dollars.
Only if one manages to overcome the resistance sustainably does the chance of a rally towards the 38.2 percent Fibo retracement of $1421 increase.
