In a previous post I put up the following chart depicting the recent major divergence between Bitcoin and GDX (gold miner index) and that if recent history is a guide for the future, we should see Bitcoin and GDX converge.

So what has happened since then?…

  • Bitcoin is down 20% from the recent peak as of now (probably due to rumblings out of China about curving chinese “Bitcoin speculation”).

What happens next is anyones guess. Boths assets should have more room for continued convergence.
