Bitcoin (BTC) headed lower to the weekly close on March 6 with geopolitical tensions and associated overall weakness in focus.
Could 2022 lead to a ‘Greater Depression’?
The pair was in the process of testing $38,000 support at the time of writing, with three-day losses approaching 12%.
Despite the “off-hours” trading environment, the trend was clearly bearish for the largest cryptocurrency, as the mood in global stocks fluctuated among analysts.
Holger Schepitz, a market commentator warned in a day.
“Economists have lowered their growth forecasts and raised inflation expectations. Global equities are now worth $110 trillion, equivalent to 130% of global GDP, which seems expensive for the current situation.”
In the event of a larger correction for TradFi, the already shaky crypto market could do just as badly, some argue – at least initially.
The famous merchant and analyst Bentoshi even went so far as to predict a repeat of the global meltdown, which caused the Great Depression 90 years ago.
The most exciting thing this year. Global markets will collapse. Any market that trades above 0 will be too high. They will call this. The Great Depression, which would be ten times worse than the Great Depression.
