Bitcoin Targeting $1,000,000 In Four Years: Former Goldman Sachs Exec. | BTC Decoupling From Stocks

➡️ REPLAY – TEEKA TIWARI – 5 Coins To $5 Million:

Economist and former Goldman Sachs hedge fund manager Raoul Pal says unprecedented global economic downturns could help underpin Bitcoin as the world’s reserve currency.

And what might that do for the Bitcoin price? Pal says he believes BTC could skyrocket all the way to $1 million before the next halving, which will occur in about four years.

Due to the devastation Covid-19 has caused the global economy, Pal says there’s a high probability that a new financial system will emerge that relies on digital currencies in multiple formats.

Pal, the founder and CEO of the Global Macro Investor, believes the market is betting on the Covid-19 recession/depression to last six months.

He thinks, however, that it’s more likely to last three years.

“It’s not clear how long it will take, but if this is a recession or depression, which I think it may well end up morphing into, and it drags on three years, I think three years would be the time horizon where they’re gonna have to do something, because I fear that the dollar is going to rise dramatically over this period of time, and basically that’s a wrecking ball to the global economy, the U.S. economy, and creating deflation as we go and a whole bunch of other problems.” 

That global economic crisis could, however, correspond with a Bitcoin explosion. When utilizing a log price scale to get a long-term outlook, Pal says the BTC price is on a path toward $1 million.

“When you look at the chart in a log scale, it looks also very extraordinary, because what’s useful about these kind of triangle patterns – I call them wedges – is that usually the size of the pole of the flag is repeated again. Now, if you did that using the log chart, it would take you to $1 million in this halving. Is that possible? Who the hell knows. I think it is. But it wouldn’t match the stock-to-flow model which says it might spike to [$250,000] or something like that.”

Bitcoin Climbs Past $9.5K as Analysts Stress ‘Decoupling’ From Stocks

A fresh surge sees BTC/USD well on its way back to $10,000 as the impact of its weekend crash continues to dissipate.

Bitcoin (BTC) rose to reclaim $9,500 on May 14 as the recovery from last weekend’s $1,200 crash gained fresh momentum.

Bitcoin’s futures this week contrast it even further with traditional markets and macro assets.

This stock “decoupling,” which Cointelegraph reported on previously, shows no signs of abating. 

As Cointelegraph analyst Scott Melker wryly summarized on Twitter:

“Remember that day that stocks dumped and Bitcoin went up? That was today. And yesterday. They’re not correlated now, and they weren’t correlated before. Thanks.”

For fellow analyst Michaël van de Poppe, paying too much attention to correlating markets in times of crisis and afterward was a dangerous game.

“When shit hits the fan (which was in March), all correlations tend to go towards 1,” he tweeted on Thursday: 

“Since then, gold, silver & Bitcoin have been resilient for any downwards move and showing strength apart from the equity markets. Don’t pin yourself on those correlations.”
