Bitcoin has a zero correlation with stocks. Critics were wrong about their doubts about Bitcoin as a safe haven, according to Morgan Creek Digital co-founder.
Bitcoin ( BTC ) could „not be more uncorrelated“ with the stock market, according to Anthony Pompliano. Data shows that BTC is outperforming macro-assets.
In a series of tweets on October 26, the co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital, also known as „Pomp,“ poked fun at critics who claim Bitcoin is a poor store of value.
Pomp about the safe haven Bitcoin: „The market proves it“
Pompliano has uploaded a chart to the behavior analysis platform Santiment. This shows that Bitcoin reached the value 0 in the 30-day correlation with the S&P 500.
„It couldn’t be more uncorrelated than it is now,“ he said in comments.
Pompliano also stressed that Bitcoin has left macro-assets behind since the March crash this year.
„So how did Bitcoin fare during an economic downturn? It outperformed stocks, bonds, gold, oil, and just about anything else. It also had little to no correlation over a significant period of time,“ he summarized.
„Bitcoin is the ultimate safe haven and the market is proving it.“
The BTC / USD pair is trading at $ 13,150, offering investors around 83 percent year-to-date returns. This compares with 24 percent for gold and 6 percent for the S&P 500, according to data from on-chain monitoring website Skew.
Pompliano believes the earlier correlation between Bitcoin and these assets is merely a short-term phenomenon triggered by the March events.
„In liquidity crises, all wealth correlations tend toward 1. That was a passing thing and it happened with gold, stocks and others, too,“ he wrote.
No more correlation?
As Cointelegraph reported, there is consensus that not only is Bitcoin decoupling from stocks and others, but that it will be a definitive turning point that is irreversible.
Among other things, represents Willy Woo , the statistician and creator of the data resource Woobull this thesis. He continues to believe that Bitcoin will soon decouple.
„The decoupling is imminent,“ he tweeted last week .
„Makes sense that BTC will continue to be correlated in the short term; but not in the long term. BTC is a safe haven, only categorizing it as ‚risk‘ (meaning it is very new) distorts that fact.“
