Veteran investor Mark Mobius, the founder of Mobius Capital, has cautioned cryptocurrency traders against using the “buy the dip strategy.” He expects the price of bitcoin to plunge further with some temporary relief happening at $20K.

Mark Mobius’ Warning and His Bitcoin Price Prediction

The founder of Mobius Capital Partners, Mark Mobius, warned crypto traders about buying the dip in an interview with Financial News Friday. He also shared his price prediction and future outlook for bitcoin.

Prior to starting his own company, Mobius was executive chairman of Templeton Emerging Markets Group. He joined Templeton in 1987 where he managed more than $50 billion in emerging markets portfolios.

While acknowledging that some crypto traders have previously been successful using the “buy the dip strategy,” he stressed that it is not a strategy that would pay off while the market still has some way to fall. Commenting on buying the bitcoin dip specifically, the 85-year-old founder of Mobius Capital told the publication:

It will not work this time until bitcoin hits $20,000, from where there might be a bounce but then the next target will be $10,000.

Some people have expressed similar warnings on social media, especially after the collapse of terrausd (UST) and terra (LUNA). UST lost its peg against the U.S. dollar and is currently trading at $0.11 while LUNA is near worthless.

“Terra Luna provides a perfect example of why you shouldn’t always ‘buy the dip,’” Gold bug Peter Schiff tweeted Thursday. “Yesterday Luna was down 98%. If you bought that dip thinking the crash created a great buying opportunity you lost 99.3% today. This can happen to any crypto.”

However, many bitcoin investors are not buying the dip to time the market for a quick profit; they plan to hold their BTC long-term. Those who believe that the price of the cryptocurrency will reach $100,000 this year, for example, are happy to get in at any price below that target.

Mobius has long been a bitcoin skeptic. In October, he told the news outlet that cryptocurrency “could really blow up,” emphasizing that it was a risk that central banks “should be paying attention to.”

He advised people in November not to look at cryptocurrency as a means to invest. “It’s a means to speculate and have fun. But then you’ve got to go back to stocks at the end of the day,” he said.
