So, check this out. Mike McGlone, the senior macro strategist over at Bloomberg Intelligence, has thrown a little caution into the Bitcoin excitement mix. He’s got this gut feeling that Bitcoin might be hitting its peak and could be in for a bit of a rollercoaster in the market.
In a chat with Scott Melker, a crypto influencer who’s got his finger on the pulse, McGlone spills the beans on his forecast. According to him, Bitcoin has been riding the wave for a good few months, especially with the buzz around a potential green light for a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF).
But here’s the kicker, folks. McGlone thinks that every good party needs a rain check. He draws a parallel to past market tops and believes that Bitcoin might just be gearing up for a trend reversal. Why? Well, it all boils down to what the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) decides on those ETF applications this week.
In McGlone’s words, “This is the week. If they pull the rug, not great. If they give the thumbs up, well, history tells us it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. And there’s a lot of hype and positivity floating around, maybe a bit too much, just like in the good old peak times.”
Now, let’s talk numbers. Bitcoin is currently doing its thing at $45,205, showing a modest 2.5% uptick in the last 24 hours. McGlone’s advice? Well, he’s not saying jump ship just yet, but he’s definitely hinting at keeping things in check. After all, it’s always good to be cautious, right?
