  • Bitcoin Going Off The Rails On A Crazy Train [View article]
    Wondering if Google, Amazon and the other big data center guys are mining Bitcoins?? The size of the price is huge, more then 20x cash on cash returns according to this:

  • Best First Quarters For The S&P 500 [View article]

  • Correlation: Gold Volatility Vs. Gold Price [View instapost]
    Hi Katchum,
    This relation seems to be true only in the long term and not be super strong. If you look at daily data the relation does not seem to be very meaningful, check here for instance: FRED_GOLDAMGBD228NLBM, FRED_GVZCLS?period=5y

    What is interesting is that the relation between gold volatility and market volatility is quite strong: FRED_VIXCLS, FRED_GVZCLS?period=5y

    Since there is a super strong inverse relationship between market volatility and equity market movements: FRED_SP500, FRED_VIXCLS,?period=5y

    I would say that if you foresee higher gold volatility to go short the market rather than long gold. Based on historical data you are more likely to make money.
