Guggenheim’s Minerd Sees Bitcoin Sinking to $8,000 With Crypto Now ‘Suspect’

Posted by Alex Wittenberg - on Friday, May 27, 2022 Under: 848FINACE

Guggenheim Partners Chief Investment Officer Scott Minerd said he expects Bitcoin to fall to $8,000 and that cryptocurrency has become a market of “a bunch of yahoos.” 

“Bitcoin and any cryptocurrency at this point has not really established itself as a credible institutional investment,” Minerd said Wednesday during a Bloomberg Television interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “Everything is suspect.”

Minerd said his firm bought Bitcoin at $20,000 and sold when it reached $40,000. Guggenheim no longer holds Bitcoin. If the firm were to take a position it would be to short the digital token, he said.

“No one has cracked the paradigm in crypto,” Minerd said. “We have 19,000 digital currencies ... most of them are junk.”

Minerd’s comments represent a dramatic shift for an investor who once predicted Bitcoin would reach $400,000, fueled by the digital currency’s scarcity and the Federal Reserve’s “rampant money printing.” Bitcoin has fallen from a high of more than $65,000 in November to trade at less than $30,000.

Other comments:

The Federal Reserve will probably remain committed to tightening unless there’s a big drop in the stock market. “Short of a sudden collapse in equity prices, I don’t believe the Federal Reserve is going to respond,” Minerd said“If the Fed blinks because of financial panic, which I think there’s a high probability of toward the second half of the year, then I think the dollar will come under pressure”
