For thousands of years, investors have turned to gold to protect their wealth from the ravages of inflation. To date, the metal is up about 9 percent. That’s outperformed a declining stock market, and the metal has once again been nearing a price of $2,000 per ounce.
In contrast, Bitcoin has been in decline this year, with the cryptocurrency at a one-month low. Bitcoin has been trading closely with the Nasdaq lately. Over a longer period of time, Bitcoin has far outperformed the metal, and likely will over longer periods as well.
For now, gold seems to be enjoying its time in the sun. It will likely be a strong performer until inflation rates start to drop. Bitcoin will likely trend sideways until the next round of money printing or perhaps even its next halving event in 2024. Traders can find profitable ways to profit from both assets.

Whatever is bothering the market now will probably not be bothering it six months down the line. That’s the case with 10-year Treasury yields. After starting the year around 1 percent, they rose to 1.75, causing a few mild selloffs in big tech companies along the way. However, the 10-year has now dropped to 1.58 percent, and the big-cap names in the market are back to all-time highs.
This isn’t the first time the market has been scared over some slight fluctuations. But even bigger events, like the pandemic selloff last year, have waned in time as a fundamentally strong economy (especially once fully reopen) is likely to be solid for the stock market for years to come. The market will find something else to worry about in time, but for now, rising bond yields isn’t one of them.

Les Brown said, “The graveyard is the richest place on earth”.
What did he really mean by that? Another way to put it is, dying with the music inside you.
Many people have dreams of becoming successful and traveling the world or whatever your fancy is.
But then again, 90 + percent die without ever putting their ideas or dreams into action. This is why it’s the richest place on earth. And I don’t want that for me! [I don’t want that for you either.] I don’t want anyone to die with huge inspirations and dreams still inside.
