BITSTAMP:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
I've been fascinated that the price of Bitcoin was recently hovering at about 3 times the price of Gold (before the recent set back).

And now that Bitcoin seems at risk of dying, I'm wondering about its value in relation to its characteristics.

So I decided to compare Bitcoin against Gold . I generated the above based only on my knowledge.

I can't say that everything on this is 100% correct, or that my choice of words is lends to perfect accuracy.

Most of the parameters and qualities of each are broadly correct, and for sure there will be pockets of exceptions.

I'd be delighted to hear what others think about all this. Add any parameters I may have missed, in comments section.

For the avoidance of doubt, I have not drawn any conclusions on which one is better. No conclusions are implied. This is not an encouragement to buy or sell cryptocurrencies of any kind.

This is not my analysis, this RIZK nicknamed colleague. The pic is simple but well illustrates that a third fractal can be created. That's why I'm also thinking that I'm buying bitcoins at 1600 usd. I think a third fractal starts with the real rise.

It's a great pleasure to always read because these comments are very interesting and useful. As far as its content is concerned, I did not make a longer-term analysis, but I'm expecting the BTCUSD 1600-1800 usd. From there I expect a fractal of another impulse. Though it's early and it may look like big bullshit, but if such a fractal comes into being, it can have a peak of $ 100,000. At this point I will not say this in an analysis :)

@meszaros, Great stuff. I'm just doing my common sense stuff. Value is linked to utility, risk and so many other things. I'm of course thinking about Gold, the standard for hundreds of years - and what possibly went wrong in killing the 'Gold standard'. Gold is as old as the earth, or possibly the universe.

Now we have an 'electronic gold' that is rather troublesome but finding its feet in utility. So evaluating the utility of cryptos for the future at a 'conscious' level. I also do a thing called 'unconscious processing' - not yet heard of in 'trading circles'. LOL. For those familiar with brain anatomy, I've put it in the thalamus. :)) May take some time, cuz I don't have control over my CPU. OMG. Have I kerfuffled 'everybody'? :))

Here is what I see if you do monthly for: S&P; Nikkei225; and DAX you will notice since 1990 for the big crash the Nikkei always broke the 40 MA first and then the domino effect S&P then DAX. Now what is happening DAX has broken it first - Eurozone and Brexit worries obviously. No big deal since 1990 when DAX goes first - didn't bother S&P much. Then again Germany and America were in focus 1987 and all markets crashed together - I think there was a dispute or problem with the direction of German and American interest rates which caused it. See how bitcoin is dropping in unison with the DAX and how Gold is going up on worries (I blacked out one of the coloured bars for each example to better illustate what I mean)

@Felix000, Good observations. In a 'doomsday scenario' - in a highly electronic world compared to the the 1970s or even 2008, traditionalists may discover a reality, that they cannot 'email' their Gold anywhere. Hence the protected value they would hold in that specific scenario is meaningless. Just to be clear, I am NOT predicting a doomsday scenario nor do I wish for it. However, the aggregate of political and financial chaos globally makes the probability of a flash crash or another recession more probable than say 1 year ago. Emphasis on 'probable'. Some 'know' that a flash crash is highly impossible, based on old knowledge. Controls of over the forex markets and stock markets have actually been stripped away. This can be found from reputable sources on the net. Did I say I was preparing for 'doomsday'? I did not. I've been considering the utility of Bitcoin and cryptos.
