Crypto risk better acknowledged | 17 Jan

BEST underperforms 16 Jan 2022: BEST again suffers from low volume trading although the up and down volatility is relative mild compared with the large crypto currencies. Our position remains unchanged accumulating rewards and cashing for reasonable yet equally speculative alternatives. Bitpanda’s PAN token had a strong, relatively very high volume, rally last week.

Platinum/Silver Ratio Technical Analysis Risk 31 Dec 2021

Platinum should benefit both against Gold and Silver from fresh industrial forward purchases during the next 6 months 31 December 2021 close: Platinum has consolidated against Silver around the 42 handle for 6 weeks where on balance risk weight time intervals are falling (weaker Platinum) to create plenty more upside for Pt in coming months.

Silver still looks attractive going into 2022 31 December 2021 close: We have released a little bit of Silver in favor of Platinum and in favor of Palladium as both white metals in this Platinum group have very strong and exponentially increasing industrial value in years to come. Recent weakness again offers this opportunity, which may become a longer but […]

Will 2022 be a Happy Year for Gold? 31 December 2021 close: If we take a quick look at the Annual risk chart, Gold is showing bearish divergence vis a vis the lower $1657 year end peak recorded in 2012, whilst the absolute peak was printed in September 2011 at $1920.
