  • Crypto analyst Cole Garner argued the market has yet to experience the worst of the economic impact from the coronavirus.
  • Garner predicted a sell-off in high-risk assets like bitcoin, and called the $4800 - $5600 range a buying opportunity. 

Popular crypto analyst Cole Garner issued a warning that the economic repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic have yet to be priced into the market. 

In a series of tweets published April 21, Garner warned traders against being lulled into believing the worst of the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic has already passed. Garner, citing hedge fund legends such as Ray Dalio and Raul Pal, argued against the idea that the market has already reached a bottom. Instead, Garner pointed to a similar bounce during the stock market crash of 1929, before equities eventually collapsed. 

Garner quoted a Mar 9 tweet by Raoul Pal, showing how far the market could fall in the event of an economic recession or depression. 

Garner also provided an aggregate of a dozen analysts he follows, finding the consensus expectation that the market would be down 50% from its all-time high. 

The crypto analyst said a crash in equities would have implications for high-risk assets such as bitcoin, eventually leading to a sell-off. 

Garner called the “big picture” for bitcoin bullish but predicted a sweep of the lows to come before the next breakout. He said a move down to the $4800 - $5600 range represented a buying opportunity.
