Many people have speculated that Cryptocurrencies can go to $10k or higher. Recently, the Chinese government has stepped up policy to regulate and eliminate Crypto ICOs as a means of increased speculation and gray-market capital. Additionally, Jamie Dimon, of JP Morgan, stated that Bitcoin is a fraud and that it would “blow up” (http://www.msn.com/en-my/news/other/bitcoin-is-a-fraud-that-will-blow-up-says-jp-morgan-boss/ar-AArR1lF). What is the truth and what should investors expect in the future? Well, here is my opinion on this topic.
Bitcoin is based on the BlockChain technology architecture. I believe this architecture will continue to be explored under the basis of an open, distributed ledger method of developing opportunities. This technology improvement will likely drive advancement in other sectors of the global market as security and accountability continue to increase. Yet, the growing pains of this technology will likely continue to drive some wild moves over the next few years.
It has been reported that Cryptocurrencies fell $23 Billion in value since the peak. This would put the total valuation of the Crypto market at about $117 Billion near the same peak. Consider for a moment that the Bernie Madoff scandal was near $65 Billion total. Could a Cryptocurrency based “Swan Event” create chaos in the global markets?

In comparison to more traditional investment instruments, the risk exposure of Cryptocurrencies seems somewhat limited. Yet consider this… Many global firms jumped onto the Blockchain bandwagon within the last 12~24 months. This is not just individual investors any longer, this is most of the global financial market.
DATE TIMELINE OF FIRST INVESTMENT INTO CRYPTOCURRENCIES
So, now our “SwanEvent” has a bit of depth in terms of risk exposure and breadth in terms of global market reach. What would an extended decline in Cryptocurrency valuations do to these firms and to the confidence in the Cryptocurrency market?
Could a collapse “Swan Event” drive prices back to below $1000 (USD) or further? What would the outcome of such an event be like for the global markets? Would this type of move reflect into the global market as an advance or decline overall? And what would this mean to the bottom line of these financial firms that have invested capital, resources and client’s capital into these markets?
It is our believe that the global markets are, without a Cryptocurrency event, setting up for a potentially massive corrective move. The chart, below, clearly shows what we believe to be a Head-n-Shoulders pattern forming that will likely prompt a breakdown move near October 2017 or shortly thereafter.
We believe this global market correction will prompt selling in weaker instruments and drive a massive “rip your face off” rally in the metals. We believe this move has already started with the formation of the Head-n-Shoulders pattern in the US markets as well as the recent upside move in the metals. The Cryptocurrency “Swan Event” may be the catalyst event that is needed to put pressure on other market instruments (US and Global equities, RealEstate, Consumer confidence/spending and Metals).
