As a Bitcoin and occasional sh*tcoin investor who has been coasting a humble living in the whacky world of digital currencies since 2017, I can say first hand the winter months of 2021 were a tough one for many of us. The market was volatile and uncertain, and many investors were left wondering if their investments were safe. But just as the winter was starting to thaw, something miraculous happened: Bitcoin’s value rose by 40% in January. This was a blessing for the entire market, but can it continue?
Will Another Bear Market Come?
The bears in the market, including one Arthur Hayes (maybe you’ve heard of him), are saying no.
The bears in the market are those who believe that the current trend of increasing value for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is not sustainable and that the market will crash. They point to several factors that they believe will contribute to this crash.
European Central Bank’s monetary tightening.
The European Central Bank (ECB) sets monetary policy for the European Union and can influence interest rates and the overall supply of money in the economy. When the ECB tightens monetary policy, it can make borrowing more expensive and slow down economic growth. Ultimately, it can negatively impact the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
US Dollar Index volatility.
The US Dollar Index (USDX) is a measure of the value of the US dollar compared to a basket of other currencies. When the USDX is volatile, it can make it difficult for investors to predict the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, which can lead to a crash in the market.
US Federal Reserve’s FOMC meeting.
The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is the policy-making body of the Federal Reserve. The FOMC holds eight regularly scheduled meetings during the year. It reviews economic and financial conditions and decides on the appropriate stance of monetary policy. Furthermore, the decision of the FOMC can have a major impact on the markets. The bears believe that the decision could negatively affect the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
But despite all these warning signs, some reports are saying that the whales in the market are still bullish. They point to the fact that over the past two weeks, $1.4 billion worth of BTC has been bought up. This is a strong indicator of accumulation behavior beginning.
So, what does the future hold for Bitcoin? The truth is, no one knows for certain. But one thing is for sure: smart money is watching closely. Many investors are waiting to see if the bears’ predictions come true, or if the bulls’ optimism will be proven right. Only time will tell.
As for me, I’ve learned that being a Bitcoin investor is a rollercoaster ride. There are highs and lows, but ultimately, it’s all about being patient, staying informed, and not letting emotions cloud your judgment. If you’re thinking of becoming a Bitcoin investor, I suggest you do your research, stay up to date on the latest news and trends, and be prepared for the uncertainty that comes with it.
