Bitcoin vs Gold (1/3)

By Bill Taylor-CEO, FintekNews & CIO, TLC Capital Group


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 (1/3):  Just wrote a piece that bitcoin/gold will achieve parity……..and bitcoin will begin an ever widening premium over gold. At this pace, it may happen quicker than even I thought. Stay long bitcoin, being short gold as a hedge does NOT hurt you so stay short gold. The race is on.

We wrote an article (8/17) going on the record saying bitcoin will outperform gold throughout the future. The chart below compares the pricing on that date to the two most recent trading days, as reference.
