Mike McGlone Predicts Bitcoin Will Drop Lower

Bloomberg Intelligence’s senior macro strategist Mike McGlone is predicting that Bitcoin (BTC) will experience a drop lower due to recessionary headwinds. In a new Crypto Outlook edition, he states that the worst might not be over for Bitcoin and foresees a liquidity crunch in the second half of 2023.

Optimistic Outcome Priced In

McGlone believes that while markets have bounced recently, their strength is not sustainable and anticipates a broader downward market trend continuing. He claims this is due to markets having priced in an optimistic outcome from long lags of aggressive central-bank rate hikes which are still rising.

Risk Assets May Feel Gravity From $7K Comfort Zone

The analyst has previously warned that Bitcoin could dip as low as $7,000 and now states that an expected US recession could push risk assets like BTC much lower. He explains how the pre-eminent 24/7 globally traded risk indicator may feel gravity from its comfort zone around $7,000 before the unprecedented 2020-21 liquidity boost occurred.

Liquidity Pumps Reversing & Dumping

McGlone further suggests that it may take a decline in equities for rates to fall; citing how liquidity pumps are reversing & dumping – as indicated by Federal funds futures in one year (FF13).
