Institutions Warming Up To Bitcoin
Gundlach stated that he is bullish on gold and bearish on dollar long term. However, he has maintained a neutral stance on both for the past six months.
I am a long term dollar bear and gold bull but have been neutral on both for over six months. Lots of liquid poured into a funnel creates a torrent. Bitcoin maybe The Stimulus Asset. Doesn’t look like gold is.
