Bitcoin is Directly Correlated to Risk Assets Says Peter Schiff; Did BTC Fall Below $8k for this?

With many variables affecting the market, Coronavirus happens to be the talk of the town, and little did we know that this would crash the markets worldwide and lure away all the investor wealth in seconds.

  • Bitcoin (BTC), at the time of writing this analysis, was trading around $7,800 after recording a dip at $7,630.15
  • BTC/USD forms a Head & Shoulder pattern on a 4-hourly chart conforming the bullish-to-bearish trend reversal
  • The current dip of BTC lacks support from the daily 50-day and 200-day Moving Average
  • 20-day Bollinger Bands project about the volatile trading days ahead as it widens
  • The major support for the coin lies around $7,600, while, the major resistance is at $8,000

Elaborating on the above tweet by the renowned broker and economist, Peter Schiff, Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies have made their way amidst the other promising investment avenues like stocks, gold, bonds, futures, etc. While it made its way as a premier investment asset, Peter Schiff believes BTC to be directly or positively correlated with the risk attributed asset and inversely or negatively correlated with the haven assets.

Now the question that surrounds that is that really the case?

Aligning our thought to the investment market technicality, we believe that regulating the market will help it correlate with other investment avenues in a better way. Until it keeps running on the basic rule of Economics, i.e., demand and supply, the crypto or Bitcoin whales are likely to snatch away everything, and the layman will consider himself to be incapable.

After being legal in India, in the previous week, the crypto market is likely to get many potential investors with little denominations invested comparatively. And, being exposed to this volatility, it is likely to question the security of the capital invested and appears as a pure gamble. However, comparing BTC with gold appears baseless to us as the two have many demarcations.
