Founder of Mobius Capital Partners, Mark Mobius, admitted his “fears” of the decline of Bitcoin (BTC) price.
The emerging markets fund manager thinks Bitcoin prices can significantly hurt tech stocks. Speaking to Bloomberg Markets, Mobius stated that the relationship between Bitcoin prices and tech markets is very close and added:
Bitcoin’s decline may hit tech stocks very severely.
According to Mobius, the real problem in the stock markets is in the technology sector since he believed that such companies “have no earnings and that have been pushed up dramatically.” In addition to sharing his opinion, the founder asked investors to keep a watch on the co-relation. He further said that if Bitcoin prices go down, “tech stocks are going to be hit very badly.”
The veteran investor admitted to holding gold even though the market has seen significant outflows from gold ETFs. Mobius thinks Bitcoin and Gold are also co-related, which is one of the reasons why the precious metal has been down. He added:
I think there again is a relationship between Bitcoin and gold because you talk to all these people, and they say gee Bitcoin is like gold as a store of value. So I think there is some relationship between these two. And one of the reasons why gold is down otherwise is no good reason why gold should be down at this stage.
Mobius further said he addresses the volatile price of Bitcoin and hoped that it would “stay up.” But he quickly added that he was “not predicting or wishing” that Bitcoin goes down in price but “hopes” the price of Bitcoin “stays up because tech stocks then will be able to revive.”
