After all, it is usually not a good sign if an exchange platform stops registering. However, there is now an apparent fault with an external service provider, so it is very likely that it is not the result of financial problems with OKX itself.
Jerome Powell does not expect a recession for the United States
If it were up to Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, things are not so bad with the so-called recession in the United States. In the outlook for the economy for the coming months, the Fed is clearly not in the recessionary camp. Chairman Powell expects the country to maintain even “reasonable” growth.
“I don’t think this counts as a recession,” Powell said of the growth of the US economy and the increase in unemployment, which the central bank chief believes is not so bad. We still can’t talk about a great outlook for the US economy.
The economy is expected to grow by half a percent next year and unemployment will increase by 1.6 million people through December 2023. The recession may be better than expected next year or there will be no recession at all, but that chance seems small.
