EToken – Rate Hike Expectation Triggered a New Round of Bitcoin Decline

Adriaan Brits



Source on January 10: Goldman Sachs predicts that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates four times in 2022 compared with three as previously forecast.

After the Fed’s latest meeting minutes showed that the current situation of inflation and employment in the US may require the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates earlier than expected and even to shrink the balance sheet, Goldman Sachs again updated its forecast on when the market will start raising interest rates and shrinking the balance sheet.

The Fed is likely to raise rates four times this year, according to Goldman Sachs’ latest forecast, and will begin its balance-sheet reduction process in July, if not earlier. Goldman Sachs predicted in mid-December that the Fed would raise interest rates three times this year, respectively in March, June, and September. Due to the advance of the time of raising interest rates, it is expected the Federal Reserve may start to reduce its balance sheet in the fourth quarter of this year.

In the evening of Goldman Sachs rate hike expectations, Bitcoin began a new round of decline, this trend also reflects the current market vulnerability, especially in the face of funds shortage, affected by this the transfer-in volume of BTC exchanges began to increase, the price dropped all the way below $30K, and even spotted that chips bought less than one week began to being sold. Such a continuous price controlling may not be a bad thing, washing away speculative chips, meanwhile long-term holders are still determined to continue to increase holdings.

The interest rate hike in 2022 is basically a certainty. At present, we can only discuss the time of rate hike. Even when it does happen, it will take a long time for the funds to recede.
