Days Of Big Bitcoin Pumps Are Over: Bloomberg’s Mike McGlone

Bitcoin volatility has declined immensely in the last few years, as the BTC price action shows. Bloomberg senior macro strategist Mike McGlone says Bitcoin volatility has more room to decline, making the top crypto’s relative risk to fall continuously. However, it is still higher when compared to the volatility of conventional store of value — gold.

Bitcoin to Gold Volatility Convergence

Mike McGlone, senior macro strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, on August 21 shared data on Bitcoin-to-gold volatility convergence. According to McGlone, Bitcoin’s volatility continues to drop against that of gold and has more room to decline than most traditional assets. Bitcoin’s volatility drop is also causing crypto’s relative risk to decline, making it less risky.

“At about 3x that of gold, my graphic shows Bitcoin’s 90-day volatility still relatively elevated vs. the conventional store of value, but well off the peak from 2018 of around 12x.”

According to the report, the days of big moves in BTC price are over. Bitcoin may not see a sudden price jump or swift move to an all-time high due to a significant decline in volatility.
