For Bitcoin, this seems to fit, since the Coin has made up for this month already more than half of its losses. Gold also had a good Start to the week with a 6%solution of Pump. Brandt points out that Gold has finally reached the inflation adjusted level of 40 years ago.

Silver is not an Option

The same is not the case for silver, as Brandt noted. The precious metal fell back to a four-year low of about $13/oz, after falling in the previous month to 36%.
Silver is more widely used in the industry because as a store of value, which is why it is in the Wake of the global slowdown in economic activity collapsed.
It is very likely that silver is recovered, if the industrial activity is resumed. However, it was in the last five years, still relatively flat, while its big yellow brother since the end of 2018 in a bull market.

This fiscal stimulus policy, which has started before the Virus outbreak, don’t stop probably, if the debt bubble grows, and the currencies of their Central banks continue to be devalued.
The investment and insurance policy against this, quantitative easing and the money madness would also include assets such as Gold and Bitcoin – the, achieve, seemingly as a response to both of this week’s gains.
