Numerous analysts have predicted a recession for the US and other economies by mid-2023. Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and owner of Twitter, and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva all warn that 2023 will be tougher than last year due to struggles in the US, EU, and Chinese economies. Despite this gloomy outlook, Bitcoin began the year on an optimistic note with prices increasing 28% since January 1st.
Jim Cramer’s Prediction
Jim Cramer, host of Mad Money suggests that investors should consider investing in a bear market as he believes it is likely to turn negative soon regardless of what Fed does. He has been publicly against cryptocurrency investments over the past few years but his predictions have often proven wrong; in September 2021 he advised people to sell their BTC holdings yet two months later it reached its all time high of $70k. In January 2022 he said that because the correction might be finished people should join crypto ecosystem only to witness another dip throughout 2022.
The Inverse Jim Cramer Strategy?
Jim Crammer’s method of conducting market analysis has been heavily criticized for relying more on anecdotal evidence rather than data analysis which may explain why his forecasts usually end up being incorrect. His advice is sometimes seen as counterintuitive which led some traders to develop an ‚inverse Jim Crammer strategy‘ – going against his advice when investing or trading assets such as cryptocurrencies.
As we move closer towards mid-2023 many analysts suggest that recession could become inevitable regardless of any action taken by Federal Reserve or other governments around world economy . With Jim Crammer’s recent bearish prediction being met with scepticism and mockery it remains to be seen if his forecast turns out to be accurate once again or another case where he was wrong this time around.
