Former Goldman Sachs executive Raoul Pal says there’s one Ethereum (ETH) chart that traders should keep on their radar.
In a new analysis, Pal points to the “Ethereum Today vs. 2017-2021 Analog” chart, which if followed, would indicate ETH is currently near the bottom of the bear market.
“Obviously, price analogs never work out perfectly, but it’s still something interesting to have on your radar.”
Ethereum is trading at $1,270 at time of writing. The second-ranked crypto asset by market cap is up nearly 1.99% in the past 24 hours.
The analyst is also looking at one chart that he says is showing the extreme bearish sentiment of stock market investors.
“Additionally, literally EVERYONE is already bearish; this chart speaks for itself and dates back to 1970.”
Looking at the chart, Pal appears to suggest that the S&P 500 may also be close to bottoming out based on its historical correlation with market sentiment spanning over 50 years.
While Pal believes a recession is coming, he says the economic downturn could be the catalyst for policymakers to loosen monetary policies.
“What we disagree on is not so much the magnitude of the recession (ISM could easily hit 40), but the duration of the recession itself. While consensus is still very much talking about an increase in financial conditions next year and therefore an entrenched global recession, we see the opposite happening…
Our lead indicators indicate that financial conditions will soon start to ease, and potentially significantly.
Financial Conditions (here inverted) are already as tight as they were during the Global Financial Crisis (+4 standard deviations) and inflationary pressures are already starting to ease. Bond yields and the dollar are down as the market continues to price in peak Fed hawkishness and, bar anything systemic and entrenched (not our base case), credit spreads are not going to blow out like they did in 2008.”
