Bloomberg Strategist: Bitcoin And Ethereum Price To Rise To These Levels In 2022
Bloomberg’s senior commodity strategist thinks both Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) will surge in 2022 despite the crypto market’s recent struggles.
In a new analysis, Mike McGlone said BTC and ETH have solid bases to build on. He predicted they would remain dominant among cryptos in 2022, with Bitcoin moving toward $100,000 and Ethereum breaching $5,000. McGlone thinks Bitcoin is in a “consolidating bull market.” According to him, the US Federal Reserve’s new policies will be beneficial for BTC.
Federal Reserve officials have recently indicated they plan to scale back asset purchases and raise interest rates next year in an effort to fight inflation.
The Bloomberg analyst explained:
“Expectations for Federal Reserve rate hikes in 2022 may support a win-win scenario for Bitcoin vs. the stock market… A reason to take back liquidity is the fact that the S&P 500 is the most extended above its 60-month moving average in over two decades.
Stretched markets have become common, but commodities and Bitcoin appear to be early reversion leaders. It’s a question of bull-market duration, and we see the benchmark crypto coming out ahead.”
According to reports, a popular pseudonymous whale 'Light,' recently said they believe Bitcoin has reached a bottom, and traders who sell at current levels are making a mistake.
Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
Looking at the Ethereum price chart, we can see that ETH has registered a marginal increase during the ongoing session after spending the entire week in the red. If buyers can retain the session, ETH could push towards $3150-$3200.
