Bitcoin vs Gold (1/4)

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 (1/34:  Whoa.  Let’s not make any position changes. Long bitcoin/short gold.  The old highs in bitcoin around $1200 will soon be history. Much room to move on the upside.  At some point (not now) moving some profits into a more stable gold will make sense.

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.
