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 for Thursday, 1/26/17:
Great day. This is how it works, LONG Bitcoin/SHORT Gold. Nice hedge for traders/investors seeking risk aversion. BITCOIN looks set to move sharply higher. Yesterday’s call for a buying opportunity looks good. Still in effect.
