Bitcoin vs Gold (1/24)

In celebration of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s (CME) launch of two new bitcoin indexes (BRR & BRTI), FintekNews is comparing the price of bitcoin and gold on a daily basis. Bitcoin IS the new gold.

Trading Notes (1/24):  Two soft asset classes today. Both bitcoin & gold soft. Treading water. Long term position remains LONG BITCOIN/SHORT GOLD.  Great 4 month return. Why change it.  Parity Soon.

We wrote an article (8/17) going on the record saying bitcoin will outperform gold throughout the future. Thechart below compares the pricing on that date to the two most recent trading days, as reference.  We at FintekNews have written (and are on record) of saying that bitcoin will outperform gold in the future.**
