Investor, entrepreneur and analyst Raoul Pal demonstrates the most attractive opportunities of the ongoing market situation—and indicates the instruments traders should avoid.

Bottom might be close, but recession can still last for 18 months

Mr. Pal does not seem to be surprised by the ongoing dropdown of cryptocurrency prices. According to him, 60+ percent plunges are common on a 5-10 year time horizon.

As such, he recommends looking at the five-year Exponential Moving Average; the Bitcoin (BTC) price normally does not spend more than 30 days below this critical level.

The flagship cryptocurrency still has a significant downside: Mr. Pal expects the macroeconomic situation (yields, stocks and so on) to get back to normal in 12-18 months.

At the same time, Mr. Pal's deviation log regression model, the RSI metric and DeMark weekly charts indicator suggest that we have entered the "buy" zone, and the bottom might be close.

For Mr. Pal, the market unlocks amazing opportunities for long-term portfolio management:

I am getting ready to add to my crypto positions significantly. Probably starting next week and into July.

Worst enemy of traders on volatile markets

While many traders are experimenting with opening short positions on major assets, Mr. Pal warns that this option might be too dangerous amid the turmoil:

Leverage is your enemy in a volatile asset. I never use leverage in crypto. Waves of margin calls are hitting those silly enough to use it and that is forcing the markets lower and causing more margin calls.

Hugh Hendry, a hedge fund veteran, stated yesterday that Raoul Pal is too optimistic about the ongoing market situation. Mr. Hendry recalls the 2008 drama:

At press time, Bitcoin (BTC) is changing hands at $22.20, being down 68% from the all-time high registered half a year ago.
