JP Morgan warns of something worse than a recession

Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan, told clients in a recent conference call that there are storm clouds ahead. This implies despite the current robust state of the US economy, something worse than a recession is in the cards. Dimon believes the likelihood of a mild recession is 20% to 30%; a severe recession has similar odds as the Federal Reserve increased interest rates. 

Quantitative tightening and the macroeconomic outlook point towards “something worse than a recession” in the US economy. While recession could slow down the economy, the president of the World Bank is on the same page as Dimon and commented on high inflation. 

David Malpass, President of the World Bank, said,

The world economy is again in danger. It is facing high inflation and slow growth at the same time. Even if a global recession is averted, the pain of stagflation could persist for several years- unless major supply increases are set in motion.

Skybridge Capital predicts Bitcoin price rally to $300,000

Skybridge Capital, an Investment Management company, recently predicted a Bitcoin price rally to $300,000. Anthony Scaramucci, founder and managing partner at global asset management firm Skybridge Capital, has a bullish outlook on Bitcoin and Ethereum. Scaramucci believes the Bitcoin price could rally to $300,000 within the next 12 to 24 months. The founder explained to investors that the world’s largest cryptocurrency is set to hit $300,000 in the long term; therefore, they should “relax” and “stay long-term.”

Scaramucci argues,

The crypto market, it’s our belief that most of the leverage is completely out of that system. So you are seeing a very strong recovery. It is a reminder to investors not to pull out, fight their own fear, stay patient and stay long-term.

Bitcoin price is headed to $300,000 or $10,000?

Neko, a crypto analyst and trader, noted that the Bitcoin price has plummeted to $21,700 in the ongoing bearish cycle. This level is key to the BTC price rally as it is the cumulative average breakeven of all Bitcoin holders, at $21,700.

Bleeding Crypto, pseudonymous crypto analysts, argue that Bitcoin price suffers a decline every September, four years in a row. It remains to be seen where BTC is headed in September of 2022, but this suggests the current bearish run might not be over.
