Bitcoin vs Gold (12/5)

Friends, in celebration of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s (CME) launch of two new bitcoin indexes (BRR & BRTI), is going to compare the price of bitcoin and gold on a daily basis. We at FintekNews have written (and are on record) of saying that bitcoin will outperform gold in the future.**   Bitcoin IS the new gold.

Trading Notes (12/2):  Italy, China Capital Controls, France and economic uncertainty are making our case; Bitcoin is the new safe haven alternative to gold. Obviously just long bitcoin is a great strategy, but we also believe gold will continue to work lower if you want a hedge.

We wrote an article (8/17) going on the record saying bitcoin will outperform gold throughout the future. Should you have done that (long bitcoin, short gold) you would be up $314.87 or 41.8% (see chart above). No reason to change, bitcoin has replaced gold as a safe haven.
