SEC, Postpones ETF Decisions Again

SEC ETF

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had postponed its ETF decisions to October 17 previously. However, due to the expected government shutdown this weekend, it announced ETF decisions earlier than planned.

The SEC has decided to postpone many ETF decisions again this week. It seems like the SEC’s decision process about ETFs will take a while longer. SEC Chairman Gary Gensler stated that Bitcoin is not a security and that they will not rush their decisions about ETFs, and they are reviewing in detail.
