Bitcoin Surges Past $28,000 – Gold Prices Are Dipping

Bitcoin Surges Past $28,000 – Gold Prices Are Dipping

The world's largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), is surging as we enter Q4 2023, with its price gaining over 4% and surpassing $28,000.

This surge has propelled Bitcoin above its 200-day moving average, setting a target of $31,000.

Meanwhile, gold prices have dipped to a two-month low due to the strengthening US Dollar, defying expectations of being a safe haven asset.

Bitcoin is emerging as a new safe haven, consistently gaining ground on gold over the past decade, with its price up over 16-fold compared to gold. However, gold’s market size remains significantly larger at $13 trillion compared to Bitcoin’s $500 billion market capitalization.

The question remains: How long will it take for institutional investors to shift from gold to Bitcoin? 2023 has been a favorable year for BTC, with lower bearish trends compared to the past decade, indicating market stability.
