Earlier this week, the crypto markets took a pause from its current run with most coins in the red. Bitcoin dropped 4.4% while gold was down 5.2%, its biggest drop 1-day drop in 7 years. This all came on the news that US bond yields are rising.

When was the last time gold moved more violently than crypto on ANY news. Is this the beginnings of a flippening? Are investors starting to flock to Bitcoin as a safe haven instead of the almighty gold? Do Bitcoin holders have stronger hands and higher conviction than gold holders?

I don’t know and I’m not ready to make that call yet, but this was a pretty cool datapoint to observe. The Fed continues to buy up credit bonds directly, stock ETFs, and anything else they can get their hands on. What happens when the music stops?

And now a quick update on SIMETRI’s Performance (as of August 12th, 2020).
