Good morning.

Here’s Yahoo Finance’s morning wrap for Thursday.

ASX: Australian stocks are due to open lower this morning in line with a fall in Wall Street overnight.

Wall Street: Wall Street’s major indexes have dropped, weighed down by technology stocks as investors unwound positions in high-flying shares and pivoted to sectors that are likely to benefit from an economic reopening on hopes of swift vaccinations.

Crypto fraud, scams: The US Securities and Exchange Commission said that the “greater challenge” in bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is protecting investors.

“Some markets have been really rife with fraud and scams,” Gensler told the Senate Banking Committee in his nomination hearing.

Gensler specifically pointed to some overseas markets, but did not elaborate on how exactly he would use SEC authority to create those protections.

Red flags: The Australian property market is booming higher as buyers race to get in, but if you’re looking to get your loan approved, you’ll need to make sure you don’t make any mistakes.

She spoke to Yahoo Finance about some of the most surprising ones to watch out for.
