What did the fight over the US debt ceiling cost?

Binance has lost a quarter of its market share, the US government is on the verge of passing a deal to raise the debt ceiling, and Eurozone inflation has fallen more than economists expected to hit its lowest level since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Plus, Ukraine’s attacks such as the Moscow drone strikes are seen as ‘magician’s sleight of hand’ that deceives the Kremlin and derails Russia’s plans.
