Stifel predicts an upcoming S&P 500 correction based on Bitcoin’s recent decline


Bitcoin’s Recent Weakness Could Signal Upcoming Stock Correction, Says Stifel’s Chief Equity Analyst

Bitcoin’s recent weakness could be signaling an upcoming correction in stocks, according to Stifel’s chief equity analyst Barry Bannister. With Bitcoin struggling to hold the $70,000 mark after reaching its all-time high in March, Bannister believes that the S & P 500 could be in for a summer correction.

Historically, the S & P 500 averages flat for about six months after bitcoin peaks, and past cycles point to a topping in the benchmark stock index. Bannister predicts that the S & P 500 could fall to 4,750, a roughly 13% drop from current levels, by the end of the summer. High beta tech stocks like Nvidia are especially vulnerable heading into the third quarter, according to Bannister.

Many see bitcoin as “digital gold,” but Bannister views it as a speculative instrument driven by excess dollar liquidity. He believes that the market is currently in an asset bubble, fueled by the injection of trillions of dollars of rescue money into the economy during the Covid-19 crisis.

Expectations for a summer correction aren’t based on bitcoin alone, however. Stifel expects “a case of moderate stagflation” to tighten financial conditions and expose the S & P’s high price-earnings ratio. Bannister also warns that investors may be in a “full-fledged bubble/mania mode which looks past our concerns.”

Overall, Bannister’s analysis suggests that the S & P 500 could experience a significant correction in the coming months. Investors will need to carefully monitor market trends and be prepared for potential volatility in the stock market.
