Investors are Leveraging Coronavirus Outbreak to Sell the Market, Says Peter Schiff

News / 03.02.2020

The US is experiencing declines in the market sector, and people blame it on the coronavirus pandemic. Nevertheless, Peter Schiff, a Bitcoin critic, believes that investors are leveraging the outbreak to sell the market.

In January, the cryptocurrency market experienced uptrends that made ETH, BTC, and LTC gain more than 20%. However, the US market declined, leading to the attainment of 2019’s lows. Recently, the Chinese market also decreased by 8% despite PBOC pumping $174 billion.

Schiff on Twitter about the Market Downtrend

Schiff tweeted about the current market downtrend and mentioned that investors are using coronavirus as an excuse to sell the market. He said that investors would have looked for another reason if not for the virus and that all these got done due to the market’s vulnerability after the US-China deal.

Schiff’s perspective may rock the cryptocurrency market’s rally since bad performance in the market may bring investors to the cryptocurrency market. It means that a classic bull trap could develop if Schiff is right. Prices uptrend come through the inevitable dumping and taking of profit by some investors.
