The uptrend of Bitcoin began in early October, since then, performing tremendously, it achieved new all-time highs. Scott Minerd, the Chief Investment Officer at the Guggenheim Partners, claims that the price could retrace back to $20,000.

A change in the statement of Minerd is observed

Guggenheim Partners, managing more than $230 billion worth of assets, is trading Bitcoin since the price was near $10,000. Last month, Minerd highlighted that the price of the leading crypto token’s fair value was $4,00,000. After which, last week, he cautioned of a speculative frenzy gripping the crypto market. And on Thursday, in the interview with CNBC, he explained that whenever a doubling of an asset’s price is witnessed in the course of a month, then an apparent setback is observed.

In the interview, Minerd also shared his view regarding the traditional currency market. Notably, he pointed towards the Federal Reserve’s liquidity boosting bond purchase program as the main reason behind the plunging of USD. Over the last year, the Dollar Index (DXY) sank by 6.83% and currently achieved a 34-month low 89.21. Following the performance, Minerd stated that the trend of the index is for more weakness. However, since Black Thursday, Bitcoin and the Dollar Index have moved in different directions. And it is expected that the opposite correlation among both is strengthening.
