Plus China crypto dominance a growing US security concern

The Lede

Coinbase is suspending margin trading starting today, with the feature being removed entirely by next month.

The decision comes based on March guidance from the CFTC, citing the questions around “actual delivery.” In related but different news, Binance is also cracking down on US users.

For crypto traders, the net impact is one thing: fewer options.

Meanwhile, the Market Refresh is going on Thanksgiving break for the next couple days. Apologies in advance for not having a big, aggressive, excited headline when bitcoin inevitably crashes through a new ATH.
