Econ­o­mist and cryp­to trad­er Alex Krüger is turn­ing bull­ish on Bit­coin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), pre­dict­ing they will fin­ish the year strong.

Krüger tells his 153,900 Twit­ter fol­low­ers that the Fed­er­al Reserve is like­ly near the end of rais­ing inter­est rates to tame infla­tion, and will like­ly piv­ot in December.

He believes the mar­kets will antic­i­pate the Fed’s piv­ot and start ral­ly­ing as ear­ly as August.

“The Fed has deliv­ered 20 x 25bps (basis points) rate hikes in its fastest and most aggres­sive hik­ing cycle in his­to­ry. Which means at least 90% of the Fed hikes are behind (if not all). That to me is all that mat­ters, and makes it easy to stay long. This has been my view all year. 

My base case is a Decem­ber piv­ot and a bull mar­ket gear­ing up in ear­ly August to front run this. Why? The econ­o­my is cool­ing and infla­tion is falling. The Fed is forced to over­shoot (hik­ing) due to its past errors … which increas­es odds of it piv­ot­ing when data rolls over.” 

Krüger says even if infla­tion proves more sticky and the Fed does not piv­ot in Decem­ber, he still believes the mar­kets will end 2023 high­er than they are trad­ing at today.

“If core infla­tion remains sticky there will be no piv­ot in 2023, but with the Fed at least 90% done regard­less (and the AI rev­o­lu­tion) upside into year end still is a good bet.” 

The cryp­to trad­er also says he is tak­ing long posi­tions on both BTC and ETH, bet­ting on them hav­ing big moves to the upside.

Accord­ing to Krüger, Bit­coin is hav­ing a chal­leng­ing time cross­ing the key $30,000 lev­el because investors are sell­ing on ral­lies and volume.

Krüger says that if Bit­coin can cross the $30,000 lev­el and fails to form a head and shoul­ders pat­tern, which is used in tech­ni­cal analy­sis to deter­mine a bull­ish-to-bear­ish trend rever­sal, it will like­ly soar.

“Mean­while, on BTC land it’s been hard to push high­er as every­one has been embold­ened to sell rips and vol. But if by chance the mar­ket man­ages to get above $30,000, then TA (tech­ni­cal analy­sis) says that’s a major failed [head and shoul­ders] bear trap [and] high odds of a strong rip. 

I am decent­ly long BTC and ETH via spot and calls, and ready to get more aggres­sive lat­er in the year.” 

How­ev­er, the cryp­to trad­er warns that if Bit­coin retests $26,000, the dig­i­tal asset may show fur­ther weakness.

“On the down­side, if BTC push­es back down to $26,000, chart to me says should see a decent flush on a stops run (good spot to de-risk if very long).” 

Bit­coin is trad­ing for $27,702 at time of writ­ing, while Ethereum is worth $1,904.
