(Bloomberg) -- Bitcoin closed in on the lowest in three weeks as the cryptocurrency’s sizzling rally gives way to pessimism that prices are too high.Bitcoin tumbled as much as 11% in the New York morning, sliding below $32,000. The largest digital asset has trended lower ever since breaking through $40,000, and losses have accelerated in the past two days.While soaring crypto prices fueled a speculative mania among the Robinhood crowd, it’s also made professional investors reluctant to buy at the top. Prices are still more than double the levels from early November and some technical analysts have argued that a retracement is overdue. It last traded below $30, 000 on Jan. 4.“Bitcoin has already achieved the fastest-ever price appreciation of any must-have asset,” wrote JPMorgan Chase & Co. strategists John Normand and Federico Manicardi in a report on Thursday. “Current prices are so far above production costs that mean-reversion lower in returns is a recurring concern.”Bitcoin was down 10% to $31,532 as of 10:08 a.m. in New York. Prices are on track for their first back-to-back weekly decline since early October.Adding to the anxiety, a report in a trade blog suggested that there had been what’s known as a double purchase, where the same “coin” is used in two separate transactions.“This really will chill a lot of that relentless buying and belief that Bitcoin is a stable form of providing transactions” if a double-spend actually happened, said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at Oanda.Chart patterns suggest the market is consolidating within a “bullish pennant” formation, according to Matthew Weller, head of research at Gain Capital Group LLC. A sharp move higher could push prices above $50,000, while a break lower would point to a deeper retracement below $30,000, he predicted.“It would likely take a more severe drop to erase the established uptrend,” Weller wrote in a note.Despite the selloff, Wall Street hasn’t lost interest in the new asset class.

(Bloomberg) -- European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde signaled that the euro-zone economy is headed for a double-dip recession, while insisting that the current level of monetary stimulus is enough for now.The ECB chief said output probably shrank at the end of 2020, and “a decline in the fourth quarter will travel into the first quarter.” Economists are increasingly predicting a contraction in the first three months of this year as governments extend lockdowns to contain the resurgent coronavirus.Speaking after policy makers decided to keep monetary settings on hold at their first meeting of 2021, Lagarde said fuller discussions are likely to come in March when new economic forecasts will be available and a clearer view of how the crisis will develop.Read more: Euro Rises to One-Week High on Hint of ECB Easing Life Support“Risks surrounding the euro-area growth outlook remain tilted to the downside, but less pronounced,” she said. “The roll-out of vaccines, which started in late December, allows for greater confidence in the resolution of the health crisis.”Governments have been intensifying restrictions on travel, leisure and non-essential shops to combat infections, with concerns heightened by new coronavirus variants and a sluggish start to vaccination campaigns. Germany, the region’s largest economy, decided this week to tighten its lockdown and extend it until the middle of February.Lagarde still reeled off a list of “positives” including progress on vaccinations, the approval of the European Union’s recovery fund, a pickup in manufacturing, and the removal of political uncertainty in the U.S.She described economic projections that the ECB published six weeks ago, which foresee economic growth of 3.9% this year, as “broadly valid.” Fourth-quarter figures on gross domestic product will be published around the end of this month.The president also reiterated that the emergency bond-buying program “need not be used in full” if financing conditions can be kept at current levels without doing so. That was a concession to more cautious members at the previous meeting. Most economists surveyed by Bloomberg say the central bank will ultimately spend the full amount, but it won’t need to top up the program again.The Governing Council didn’t discuss exchange rates, the people said. Lagarde said in her press conference that the euro’s strength is being monitored “very carefully” because it has an impact on inflation -- by suppressing import costs -- that is already far below the ECB’s goal.Policy makers also talked about longer-term options for their policy instruments, including the potential to merge their pandemic program and an older bond-buying plan as well as yield curve control, according to officials familiar with the matter, asking not to be identified discussing confidential deliberations.That part of the meeting was held as part of a wide-ranging strategic review that is looking at topics from the inflation goal to how the institution can help tackle climate change. An ECB spokesman declined to comment.Lagarde pledged that monetary aid will continue as long as needed, and said governments must keep spending -- though again with an eye on the pending recovery.“We believe fiscal support has to be continued,” she said. “The slight qualification we would have is that we certainly recommend it is as targeted as possible and temporary, given that we all hope for recovery during the course of 2021, probably in the second half more than the first half.”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks edged higher after closing at all-time highs on optimism that fiscal spending will revive economic growth and bolster corporate earnings. The dollar weakened.The S&P 500 Index continued its strong start to 2021, boosted by President Joe Biden’s push for nearly $2 trillion in additional spending and plans to jumpstart a federal response to the pandemic. Benchmark Treasury yields remained higher after initial jobless claims posted a small decline.In Europe, tech firms led gains, with the Stoxx 600 Index touching its highest level in 11 months. The euro held an advance after the European Central Bank left rates unchanged and affirmed the size of its pandemic purchase program at 1.85 trillion euros ($1.2 trillion).The MSCI World Index reached an intraday record on Thursday as investors look forward to increased economic support to battle the pandemic. ECB President Christine Lagarde warned the virus continues to pose a serious risk after policy makers voted to keep pumping unprecedented amounts of stimulus into the economy. In the U.S., Biden is seeking a $1.9 trillion fiscal package that’s already drawn criticism from several Republican senators.“High valuations could find justification in the strong recovery that we expect, while inflation assets remain in the affordable zone,” according to Florian Ielpo, head of macroeconomic research and multi-asset portfolio manager at Unigestion SA. “We therefore see 2021 as a land of investment opportunities.”Meanwhile, fresh tensions surfaced between U.S. companies and Beijing.
