Guggenheim Partners chief investment officer (CIO) Scott Minerd says bitcoin’s bull run may have peaked following its surge above $40,000.

For the time being, we have probably put in a top for bitcoin (BTC, -10.05%) for the next year or so.

Bitcoin had previously recorded a record high of $41,962 on January 8 before dipping back into the $30k range.

Minerd continued, saying the pullback was not unexpected. He explained that price dips tend to follow rallies, such as bitcoin’s epic run to end 2020.

When we have a doubling of a price of an asset in the course of a month, we are prone to having a setback.

In an interview with Bloomberg last month, the Guggenheim CIO said bitcoin’s fair value was pegged at $400,000. However, Minerd warned a frenzy of speculation had overtaken the market for crypto, leading the investment firm to tread more cautiously.
