IG Trading the Markets:

In today's episode, we are talking gold. The precious metal may test the recent support before lifting up sometime into 2021.

Jeremy Naylor is joined by Ross Norman, CEO at Metals Daily. They look at who is buying, why the markets have lifted, and what could be the impetus in the next move up, which, Norman says, may be some time into the first few months of 2021.

The debate as to whether Bitcoin is eating into the potential gains for gold continues. The feeling is that while there is an overlap, it’s not doing much damage to the gold price at present.

Also, on the subject of how much gold one should hold in a balanced portfolio, Norman gives us a golden tip that is dependent on your expectations for a portfolio collapse.

    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst If you are on investment and hedge in gold and crypto, this is a good article. Bitcoin is becoming the digital gold for many, as a refuge investment in this complicated 2020. We, however, would like to talk more about how on long term BTC and crypto will be a tool in the 4th IR digital economy changing the way we do things. It is time for a real positive reset (not necessarily the ones elites are thinking about).
