Recession Fears Ignored By Crypto Rally

Advance estimates indicate that the U.S. GDP shrank by 0.9% in the second-quarter compared with an analyst's expectations of a 0.5% gain. The decline could be considered as a signal of recession. Crypto markets on Thursday evening largely shrugged off the data and continued to rise. 

“Risk appetite roaring back after a second consecutive contraction for the U.S. economy raises the chances that the Fed could be looking to tighten at a softer pace at the next policy meeting in September,” said Edward Moya, a senior market analyst for OANDA.

DOGE On The Web

Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus questioned whether there was a recession as the “goalposts keep moving.”

“One thing is for sure - we were in “hyper delusional free money” and we aren’t anymore,” tweeted Markus.

Meanwhile, DOGE-bull and Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter that “inflation might be trending down.” 

Markus said in response to Musk that cryptocurrency and markets are “dying” while prices of food, shelter and transportation are rising.

“So would be cool if everything could get cheaper while the markets recover.”
