Bitcoin Against Gold? More Like Bitcoin & Gold Against Stocks & Bonds!

Please Note: Blog posts are not selected, edited or screened by Seeking Alpha editors.


  • A growing chatter among investors assumes that Bitcoin's success is Gold's failure (and vice versa). Who determine whether these are perfect substitute assets?
  • Over $18 trillion of bonds already trade with negative yields, and the inclusion of Tesla in the S&P 500 is going to make stock look uber-expensive.
  • Money printing, stimulus, central banks, monetary policy, zero/negative rates/yields. #TINA? sure there is!
  • If we learn something from Disney is that it's all about how you present yourself. Convince investors you're the real deal, and they would buy PLUS size, no questions asked.

I have a dream, a song to sing

To help me cope with anything

If you see the wonder of a fairy tale

You can take the future even if you fail

I believe in angels

Something good in everything I see

I believe in angels

When I know the time is right for me

I'll cross the stream, I have a dream

The news regarding AstraZeneca (NASDAQ:AZN) acquiring Alexion Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALXN) in a deal worth $39B certainly brighten our weekend, as ALXN happy shareholders.

However, we will take this opportunity to talk a bit about the Gold vs. Bitcoin narrative that seems to dominate the alternative investment scene recently.


Nevertheless, we wish to claim that although both these assets fall into the "alternative assets" pool, there's a room for both to flourish rather to play (perfect?) substitutes for each other.

There are over $18 trillion worth of bonds currently trading with a negative yield.

World's Negative-Yielding Debt Pile Hits $18 Trillion Record

Believe it or not, that pile now also include most of the PIIGS countries: Italy (EWI), Spain (EWP) and even Portugal (PGAL)!

More debt trading with negative yields = Greater allure for alternative investments such as Crypto Currencies and Precious Metals.

In addition, equity valuations are sky-rocketing. As we've explained last Friday, the upcoming inclusion of tesla (TSLA) in the S&P 500 (SPY) is going to turn an already very expensive index into a very expensive PLUS index.

A bit reminding of what's happening to Disney (DIS) nowadays when the "PLUS" (i.e. streaming business) is all that matters...

Anyway, back to our topic.

The combination of record-high level of negative-yielding debt PLUS record-high valuations of stocks makes for a perfect substitute. Not of Bitcoin instead of Gold, rather of Bitcoin and Gold instead of traditional assets.


Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
